While I’m not saying raw strength isn’t useful, golf has always been about so much more than that.
Even if we’re just talking about distance, the vast majority of it comes from having perfect swing TECHNIQUE.
In other words, it doesn’t matter how fast you can swing the clubhead if it doesn’t make perfect contact.
For example, many of my clients at the Centre see their distance IMPROVE by using less overall force, but ensuring they hit the “sweet spot” on the club ever time.
So what I’m saying is raw power is only a very small part of an effective swing.
Solid technique is a lot more important, and that’s why older golfers can keep up.
