Lessons from the Pros:

try this to improve hand speed

Zach Allen is back with another great deWiz lesson, this time taking a look at an easy way to speed up the hands!

"if we get our hand speed to move faster, that club head is going to move faster."

It seems simple right? Hands move faster, the club moves faster! If that's the case, why is everyone so enamored with "increasing club head speed" and not focused on what is controlling that club head?

Former Southern California PGA Teacher of the Year, Zach Allen, takes us through a simple drill to help increase your hand speed and add distance.

Average PGA Tour hand speed is between 19-21 mph, and while most club golfers will struggle to reach that level of speed, this technique will certainly help any golfer move those hands faster!

The Drill: Grip the driver similar to how you would hold a hockey stick. Work on whipping it through the downswing and then STOPPING when the lead arm reaches parallel to the ground. Check out the full video for more details!
