Hogan’s Drill For More Power

We’re wanting to increase our distance — gain clubhead speed and make the ball go farther — and we’re going to go old school on this one and learn a drill Ben Hogan used. Hogan would put a cigarette box underneath his trail heal and feel like he was smashing that box in his backswing.

What these new-age ground force reaction plates can verify for us is how important getting our weight into our trail heal in the backswing to create load and storing of energy that will allow us to explode through the golf ball.
