Hover Your Club

If your more of a <strong><em>"THUNKING"</em> </strong>person then watch today's prescription and learn how to hit the ball 1st and turf later.

There’s nothing better than sweet smell of freshly cut greens AND the distinct sound of a crisply hit iron shot.

If you’ve ever visited the driving range at a PGA Tour golf tournament one thing you’ll notice is that it sounds so different than your local driving range or country club.

You don’t hear dense “THUNKS”, but mostly crisp “SWACKS”.

If your more of a “THUNKING” person then watch today’s prescription and learn how to hit the ball 1st and turf later.

The key to generating that“SWACKING” sound.

Your Prescription to a Better Game,

    I once saw Norman play at a charity tournament and three sounds still resonate, one of which was the described “swack” and the other was the sound of the ball traveling at a remarkable speed. It was a shock to hear the ball jetting away. The third was the sound of the club on the downswing. “We” just don’t make those sounds! Each had a purity, a distinctness, and the totality was aurally startling.

    Doesn’t hovering CREATE tension? You have to hold the weight of the club in the air instead of resting it on the ground.

      Hey David, that would be my take on this too. Maybe the better explanation is that hovering the club make for a constant degree of tension, whereas resting the club requires an exhertion of tension to get the club moving – which might result in too much tension. Have to think about that..
