Golf Swing For Seniors And How To Increase Swing Speed

When it comes to the golf swing for seniors, the drop off in clubhead speed and power is usually the biggest concern. If you’re a senior golfer who has seen a big drop off in clubhead speed over the years, the reason is one simple thing. You’re not releasing the club properly in your swing. The truth is you’ve probably never released the club properly. That’s a big reason why you’ve probably never hit it as far as you know you could. On some of the shots you’d feel the ball rip off the club face and you just never knew why sometimes it worked like that and others it didn’t!

The trick is understanding HOW to release the club, especially in a golf swing for seniors. The release is where the bulk of your speed comes from. About 2/3rds of your clubhead speed comes from just the release of your wrists. If you don’t release your hands correctly, you will never regain the speed you had when you were younger. Here’s the beauty of all of this though. Because you probably never released the club properly to begin with, you can actually learn to hit the ball farther in your 60/70’s than you could in your 20’s! Here’s what just one of my members posted recently.

The reason is, the bulk of the speed comes from the hands and you’ll need it more in a golf swing for seniors. You see what FEELS powerful in the swing and what actually is powerful are two totally different things. What I mean by that is if you’ve lost a big amount of speed, and you typically see that start in the 50’s, you’ve lost the ability to rotate as quickly. When your younger, that’s generally where most players create the clubhead speed. Because you’re younger and more flexible, it can work….at times. And while that feels really powerful, it does take a lot of effort to swing that way. The fact is though, it does NOT create truly powerful clubhead speed. Watch the video above and you’ll see the difference in rotation with the body vs speed with the proper release.

In 3 minutes, I can teach you how the greats properly release the club. Bobby Jones, Tiger Woods. Take a look at the release patterns in their hands that I’m going to show you. You’ll realize that you CAN get your clubhead speed back. You can even hit it further, even as a senior golfer, than you ever hit it before.
