I have yet another article from a golf publication talking about driving distance and club head speed.  Their answer is rotation, wrong. Rotation does not produce club head speed and we (PPGS players) are living proof that it does not come from body rotation.

How do you produce club head speed? Swing your arms faster and use a vertical golf swing. Do not expend energy pulling the golf club vertical then yanking it down to meet the golf ball.
