What Do You Get With A £10 watch That You Don’t With A £250 Driver ?
A QUICK START USER GUIDE ….. THAT’S WHAT !!
Take Rory Mcilroy for example …he’s got a decent swing as does Luke Donald or Ernie Els … well I would love to get any one of them in my studio for 30 mins and try a little experiment along the lines of ….
“Morning Rory how’s it going” ?
“Doing great Gary thanks …. hitting it miles “
“Good stuff Rory glad to hear it .. Let me see you hit a few drivers ?
“No bother Gary … keep your eye on this bud I’m gona knock it over that fence”
“Go for it Rory” !
“WHACK !! … BALL takes off slightly to the right CARRIES 285 yards … clears the end of the Range”
“Another one Gary ?
“Yes please Rory .. only I would like to tweak 3 bits of detail at address”
“OK .. what”s that ?
“I want you to push the tee down low , close the face 3 degrees and move the ball opposite the middle of your chest …. now use the exact same swing as you did a min ago”
“PING !! …. BALL FLIES 10 YARDS OFF GROUND … STRAIGHT LEFT …. HITS THE LEFT HAND SAFETY NET POST”
“Holy Mary Gary !! That felt like the same swing ?
“It was Rory .. Except the range ball doesn’t know it was you swinging the club does it ?
The point I’m making is … it doesn’t matter how good your swing is … if the detail at address is wrong.. “physics will always kick talents ass“
GARY’S QUICK START USER GUIDE – FOR THE DRIVER
- You need to see half the ball above the roof of the club to encourage a strike just above the centre of the face
- Face Angle – The face needs to look slightly open in order to propel the ball on the intended starting line
- Ball opposite left armpit/shoulder to promote a level or slight upward angle of attack
