Do you want to need more golf power? Are you looking for how to improve golf swing? Shawn Clement from The Art Of Simple Golf explain’s in this golf lesson to drive and hammer the nail for your best golf swing. Learn more at

In this video Shawn Clement present with another fabulous golf swing tip on how to get you more power in your swing.

Imagine, you have a hammer in your hands, now If I’m hammering the nail straight down into the ground that would look like this wouldn’t it.
So, notice how you take the hammer, the two bones of your arm the radius and the ulna. Now stacked on top of one another and I’m driving the nail downwards.
Notice the angle of my head
Notice my shoulders everything’s quite level.
Even a little tilted forward.
In golf, we’re driving that way the targets over there. So, now I’m gonna set up in a way where I can drive the energy of my swing.

In this direction, notice How I just did that. Look where my hand is now and look where the two bones of my arm are now. They’re stacked this way driving in that direction.

Now, again, I’m gonna hammer this way so now you’re hammering like this. This is a very weak way to hammer that’s when you feel very flippy and your wrists where as this is where, so if you take it with both hands this is me driving down. So that’s why you must air and give that strong grip a chance when you’ve got a strong grip.

You’re basically hammering in that direction. You don’t want to take a strong grip and then try to hammer at the ball that’s when you get your low snap hooks and all that beautiful power has been wasted to the left.

You want to take this power and send it out toward the target that’s the key. So I have my door frame.

I’m driving through the doorframe in that direction so when I take my driver essentially what we’re doing is we’re hammering slightly up. So watch what happen, I’m driving down on the ball. See how close that face is there’s my neutral grip and now I want to drive toward the target.

So look at that when I did my clubface is now no longer, closed its square and notice the alignment of my anatomy is now moving toward the target. So you notice how my body tilts to the side not off balance that would not allow me to have a proper kinetic chain.

Now, it feels like I can take the weight of that hammer and deliver it all the way out, towards my target. So I pick my target hammering down, hammering through all right now. It feels like I can go through the tip of the tee with the weight of my hammer.

Here we go, gather the weight deliver through.

Enjoy you guys and let me know where you confused by write down a comment.

  1. Great advice guys, its also like swinging a baseball bat, you have to let your trail arm and shoulder rotate ( the opposite to this is flying elbow) your downswing will feel like swinging a bat or even a karate chop (trail hand) , club will automatic "shallow" and "lag", i use preset trail arm stacking the bones but with a neutral grip, just preset trail up facing up then just turn you wrist to get the grip you like, but try different grips to see what works for you

  2. Well, nothing is going to matter if the face doesn't meet the ball square. The strong grip Shawn suggests, IMO, is what does that so not only do you get the power behind the strike but the face comes in at the correct angle. Unfortunately, this doesn't help if you insist on releasing the trail wrist before the club gets to the ball, you'll drive the club into the dirt. For my money Shawn's recent tip about lag; i.e. using the lead arm to drive the club head through the ball, is the key to getting a clean strike. It's not as easy to do as it looks, but it can work. Once you've trained your trail arm to behave THEN you can focus on the right arms/hand configuration to get maximum force (a la Pete Cowen's axe drill).
