Gain 35 Extra Yards with a Better Swing Path

Most amateurs lose unnecessary distance and direction of their drives because of an outside to inside swing path. Simply put they come over the top. The reason for this is because swing path affects not just direction but the angle of attack of the club.

The average golfer can change launch and spin rates with the same clubhead speed and same ball velocity by correcting their swing path, resulting in significant gains. If the average golfer corrects their swing path (the over the top move) by 5 degrees, they can effectively gain 35 extra yards off the tee with a 90mph swing speed.

Most tour players have an inside to outside swing path which creates an upward blow on the ball. The result is a higher ball flight with less spin, creating farther tee shots.

    Hello Gene< I follow your explanations to remind me of the parameters of good golf swings and your explanations are great thanks
    however i think there is another variable which can help golfers gain distance and accuracy

    the ball !

    have you ever done tests with balls of different compression values for an average 90 mph swing ?

    I believe amateur golfers cant compress a hard ball enough and the ball develops more side spin [ or spin off the axis ?] causing fades , hooks and loss of distance
    And visa versa with fast swinging players using too soft a ball

    I would love to see a test revealing the effect [ if any ]of using the wrong compression balls , thanks for a great series

    You always provide useful information but it would be more helpful if the mechanical stroke was in slow motion. This would make it easier for me to visualize and process what you are presenting.
