If you watch carefully as a tour player swings to the top of their backswing you may notice that they don't actually turn their shoulders back together. Their lead shoulder (left for right handers) will stop turning whereas their right shoulder will stretch that little bit further at the top. A good drill to rehearse this dynamic action is to make a back-swing, stop at the top, and then try to coil a little farther with your right shoulder. If you feel your pectoral muscles on the right side really stretching, you’re on your way to learning how to create extra power. Watch this great drill.
