The top 10 golfers on the PGA Tour average 300 yards or more in driving distance. How far you hit the golf ball matters not only to your ego, but it is one of the most important factors in lowering your score. Making a full turn in your back swing is crucial to achieve your full swing speed potential. A “full turn” is approximately 90 degrees; 45 from the lower body and 45 from the upper body. If you have a restricted back swing and can’t get close to a full turn, you will not be able to hit the ball as far as you are capable.

Factors Limiting Turn
1.) Limited Hip Rotation
2.) Limited Mid Spine Rotation
3.) Low Back Instability
4.) Lack of Core Stability

The most important elements to increase your turn and add distance to your game are hip rotation, mid spine rotation, low back stability and core stability. Limitations in any of these key elements of increasing your turn can also cause you to be more susceptible to injury from golf and in everyday movements as well. If you want to PLAY BETTER and FEEL BETTER you need to increase your rotation to approximately 45 degrees with the upper and lower body to reach the 90 degrees of turn that is optimal in golf.
