Mike Carlson is no ordinary golfer - with an amazing ability to hit the ball over 400 yards in the air, he is one of the longest hitter on the planet. "Mighty Mike" as he is known, has made it to the World Long Drive Championship final a staggering three times, and has a swing speed of nearly 150mph! Here Mike's swing coach John Novosel explains how the moves he makes in his swing are so effective in generating that amazing fast clubhead speed and raw power!

"The keys to crazy distance are incredible flexibility with a big backswing, great lag, and an active lower body that can squat, extend and rotate through impact. Mike possesses all of these and that's why he can crush a ball over 400 yards. These are the keys to his swing..."

View the image gallery for a step by step guide to this incredible swing.
