TIP of the Week by PGA Teaching Pro Chris Peterson

What I often see in golfer’s setup before the swing is taken is that they tend to be reaching for the ball with their hands way out in front of their body, especially with the driver.  This is common because you feel like you can get more power and leverage the farther away you stand, Not True.  Your body needs to be able to hinge correctly and release the club on your follow through, so the arms and hands need to be RELAXED.  Make sure in your setup that your arms and hands just dangle straight down from your shoulders, which means having to stand closer to the ball for most.  This again allows you to hinge your hands correctly on the backswing and release (turn your hands over) on your follow through.  A pretty simple explanation but it works.
