Create a powerful turn and you'll blast it past your friends without looking like you're even trying
By Adam Scott, with Michael Walker Jr.
Ben Hogan said that any golfer could break 80 if he set his mind to it. I don't know about that, but I think every golfer is capable of breaking 90. To max out your scoring potential, you'll need to max out your distance off the tee. Many amateurs try to get there by swinging as fast they can, but all that does is upset your rhythm. When you watch Tour events, the guys never look like they're swinging hard, yet many regularly blast it 300-plus yards. How do they do that? The key to effortless power is your rotation around your spine. What that means is you want a small hip turn and a big shoulder turn to store power during your backswing. Then maintain a stable core so you can release all that energy at impact.
