I’ve got an interesting video for you that shows hard numbers to support what I’ve been telling our students for quite some time. Don’t hit down, hit up on the ball? The launch angle needs to be much higher than many club fitting experts claim and again here’s proof below.
Our subject picked up about 50 yards just by changing his tilt and path through the golf ball. He went from a launch angle of about 8 degrees to 20 degrees. He didn’t change drivers either so so much for buying a new driver thinking that you will pick up a ton of distance. An extra 4 or 5 yards maybe?
If you’re not sure if your swing path is what it should be get out your cell phone and video your golf swing from front and down the line and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
