Here's Today's Tip ... Swing Sequence.
Natalie Gulbis is American-born professional golfer of Latvian decent. She started playing golf at the age of 4. She grew up in Sacramento, California. At age 7 she won her first tournament. At just 22 She clinched a professional tournament at the Evian Masters in France.

If you’re always looking for ways to add more distance to your game. Whether it’s an extra 20 yards off the tee, or being able to hit an 8 iron instead of a 7 iron on your approach shot hitting the ball further can make the game easier and more enjoyable.

So ... what’s the SECRET to getting more distance?

It’s simple really - more speed. The faster your club head is traveling when it impacts the ball, the faster the ball will be traveling toward it’s target, and the further it will fly.

The PGA TOUR’s most elite players are able to achieve club head speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour, and ball speeds in excess of 170 miles per hour.

What most golfers don’t understand is that creating speed like this is NOT about swinging fast or swinging hard. It’s about moving your body in a very special sequence...

To MAX out your distance focus on sequencing your swing in this order ...

1. Lower body. Your glutes are the largest muscles in your body, and putting them to work in your golf swing is essential if you want to create big time distance. From the top of your backswing your legs should fire first, driving and rotating toward the target.

2. Core. As soon as your legs begin to drive and rotate toward the target the muscles in your core should become active - working to transfer that energy that your lower body has created to you shoulders and arms.

3. Upper Body. Pulled by your legs and your core, your upper body will have no choice but to begin to rotate toward the target. As your arms begin to drop they will be working to transfer the energy you are creating through to your club head like they are cracking a whip.

Next time you’re on the driving range take a few slow motion practice swings to feel this proper sequence. Once you get it down you’ll be amazed by how much distance you can add to your game WITHOUT swinging any harder.
