But when I get the feeling of my pelvis going forward and my spine extending, I feel like I'm bringing a wind storm with me with I come into the ball.
But I'm interested in what the experts on the swing say to the con's of it not being a very powerful swing?
Just bad information imo. Good chance they haven't spent any time with a S&T instructor or attended a clinic.
Using the ground for power, ("jumping"), hitting the ball first, (compression), hands in, (utilizing angular momentum) are pieces all players use to hit the ball far. Here is Greg Norman pushing his hips forward, tucking his butt, hands forward at impact with a driver, and straightening the legs, jumping using the ground. Don't think he struggled with hitting it far enough :)
