Golf Swing Speed
Speed in the golf swing is the speed of your hips.
Most golfers rotate their hips only one mile an hour.
This is slower than most people walk.
Tour pros rotate their hips an average of 2.4 miles an hour. This means that they are rotating their hips 140% faster than the average golfer.
Pros also rotate their hips earlier in their golf swing Sequence.
Once you have measured your golf swing Sequence and Separation, the next step is to measure your hip speed.
Our golf swing video shows you how to do this.
Once you have your hip speed measurements, you will have a better idea of what you need to work on. The Somax Golf Swing DVD will then show you what you need to do to improve your hip speed.
Golfers at our facility in Tiburon, CA have made tremendous improvements in their average distance off the tee as they improve their hip speed. One golfer went from an average drive of 290 to 350— then to 370.
Pros have faster hip rotation than the average golfer only by accident. The conventional golf swing cannot teach you how to achieve faster hip speed. In fact, the modern, conventional golf swing actually restricts your hip speed.
Once you measure your hip speed and know how to improve it, you can learn to rotate your hips as fast, or even faster than the average tour pro.
