 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

  1. You need to see half the ball above the roof of the club to encourage a strike just above the centre of the face
  2. Face Angle – The face needs to look slightly open in order to propel the ball on the intended starting line
  3. Ball opposite left armpit/shoulder to promote a level or slight upward angle of attack
