You can get more distance on your swing maximizing coil and keep body relaxed with
a light grip. At address, keep most of your weight on right foot. Widen your stance, with toes pointed out. Tee ball high and hit it with an ascending blow. Use a strong grip and light grip pressure. Waggle to relax muscles and rehearse hinging of
right wrist. Make a wide arc and strive for maximum extension. Maximize coil and get left shoulder and hip behind ball on backswing.

To maximize coil, don’t lift left foot on backswing. Hinge wrists fully at top of backswing. Be sure to complete the backswing to put the club in the right position.
Don’t let your left arm bend at the top of the backswing. Start your downswing by pointing the butt end of the club toward the
ball. Relax arms, make a shallow approach, delay turning of shoulders
on downswing, let arms extend and pull shoulders into finish. Accelerate the club slowly on downswing. Rotate shaft through impact.

Try to generate maximum clubhead speed when the clubhead passes the ball, not at or before impact.Keep head and upper body behind ball throughout swing. Try to keep your right heel on the ground longer on downswing to help keep your body back. Hit the ball on the upswing. Throughout the swing, the only pressure point in your grip should be
at the point where the lower pad of your right thumb meets the
knuckle of your left thumb. This steps should help you to get more distance when you need a power shot in playing golf.
