Smash Factor is the relationship of the clubhead to the golf ball velocity. Put more simply, smash factor is the relationship of the clubhead speed to ball speed. The USGA has limits on the speed a golf ball can leave a club face. In general, this limit is a ratio of 1.50. This means that […]
Backspin can have a major impact on the distance of your drives, along with a handful of other factors. If you have a slower swing speed, you need more backspin to get the ball airborne, but if you have a higher swing speed you need a lower backspin rate to ensure the ball won’t ‘balloon’. […]
Lag vs casting and the power that is delivered to the ball can be explained simply as when that power is used. Is it early in the swing or is it at impact? The longer we can store the energy in our swing (lagging) and the closer we can release it at impact, the more […]

Gene from Golf Laboratories talks about ideal impact location for your irons and the best way to achieve it. It will dramatically improve your ball striking and have you hitting in the measured center and the lower third so you can achieve the proper launch and proper spin to maximize your distance.
A square swing path is the most accurate. But we see Tour players often hit from the inside out. Gene breaks down the reason for us in today’s video, as well as shares some advice on how you can improve your swing path accuracy.
Many people think that their shaft flex selection comes down to swing speed… but there is a lot more to consider. As always, Gene has the insight and recommendation you need to transition to the right flex. Many amateurs have it wrong.
