This training aid will help you leverage the ground and generate more power in your swing
By now you’ve probably heard of the term “ground reaction forces.” Put simply, they’re a measurement of how successfully you leverage the ground during your swing — a vital power source.
GOLF Hall of Fame Teacher Mike Adams recommends The Force Pedal to boost your leverage game. These colorful disks (one soft and one firm) train you to use the ground more effectively. Start by placing the soft pedal under your lead foot. Now swing. The pressure you feel under your foot helps you torque against the ground like a Tour pro.

The Force Pedal
“Ground reaction forces are one of the hardest things to teach,” Adams says. “The Force Pedal makes it easy.”
After a few swings, remove the disk. You’ll soon develop an awareness of how pressuring the ground boosts speed. Congrats — you’re a power hitter.
