I’m not your typical Tour player — before I took the game seriously I raced motorcycles in the deserts of the Southwest. I’ve never looked at my swing on video — I rarely think about mechanics, and sometimes I take a practice swing before I hit a shot and, well, sometimes I don’t.
For me, golf is about feel and swinging free, like you couldn’t care less about your results. I know that might be hard to accept, especially if you’ve been struggling to hit the ball straight or have contact issues, but hear me out. When you’re able to build trust in what you’re doing and simply “let it go,” power creeps into your swing as if by magic.
Here’s how I do it — it’s an easy way to stop allowing swing thoughts to get in the way of the solid power swinger lurking inside you.
