Golf Tips

Feet Out for More Power

By Charles Frost

Head Teaching Professional
Quail Hollow Club

Charles Frost, who has been offering golf tips in our newsletter for over five years, had the opportunity to fulfill a dream this past May. He received the final sponsor exemption into the Wells Fargo Championship and was able to compete in his first PGA TOUR event. “It was a dream come true and I was very grateful for the opportunity,” he said. “I just wish I could have made the cut.”

Frost shot 74-75 and did not qualify to play on the weekend. However, true to his loyalty and work ethic, he was back to work Saturday and Sunday helping Quail Hollow Club’s staff in many aspects of tournament operations.

If you turn both of your feet out 10 to 15 degrees, then you will be able to open up your knees and hips which will allow for more turn. You should then gain more power. When you open up the right foot you should get better turn on your backswing. When you open the left foot this will help you turn more through the ball on the forward swing. The turn through the ball is a great source of power.
