The correct knee action in your golf swing can add more yards!

Correct knee action in the golf swing can make all the difference in your game.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf explain how the real key is the movement of the left knee on both the backswing and the downswing.  Learn to stabilize the right shin on the backswing and then drive the left knee towards the target on the downswing to get you that extra power you have been looking for.

In today’s Impact Show, we discuss the lower body in the golf swing and show you how three great ball strikers (Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus and Bubba Watson) use their lead leg throughout the swing. We look at some of the key ingredients to an effective leg work in the swing as we answer one of our follower’s questions. 

And WRXers, don’t forget to get post your questions on what you would like to see us cover in our next Impact Show.
