HOW can a not so tall teenager like Lydia Ko hit the ball so far? …. tour veteran Johnny Miller reckons women golfers have to do a lot of things “better than the men” to make up for a comparative lack of strength.
In this video Miller discusses the LPGA Tour and the swing techniques lady golfers use to improve their games … things like using extra width, gaining power with the “pause”, lifting up through impact and keeping the arms straight for longer after impact.
It is often suggested older male golfers beginning to lose some strength and flexibility should look to the ladies for continued inspiration … rather than attempting to continue to rely on brute force.
