The Smart Path To Better golf

       Long Club Woes

BY GEOFF GREIG

Do you have more difficulty with the woods and long irons than with the short irons and mid irons? You are not alone. The vast majority of golfers experience greater inconsistencies as the clubs get longer.

Woods and long irons have less loft and longer shafts than the rest of the clubs in the bag. These structural characteristics can either help us or drive us crazy. Fewer degrees of loft means less backspin which translates into optimum distance trajectory. Greater shaft length means a larger swing arc and more clubhead speed. Unfortunately, less backspin can also turn into greater sidespin and extra clubhead speed will magnify the effects of the sidespin. The challenge is to maximize the positive effects of the longer clubs and minimize the negative.

The only way to get the most out of the longer clubs is to strive for solid ball/clubface contact. It is not necessary to swing harder to propel the ball further with the driver. The design of the club will take care of the extra distance, if the ball is struck with a square face on the correct path. When you swing harder with the longer clubs you are just making it more difficult to strike the ball solidly. With the longer clubs this is a recipe for disaster. Find a repeatable swing pace while practicing with your favorite iron and train yourself to use it for every club in the bag. If you want consistent ball flight start with a consistent swing pace.

Efficient practice can also help you to overcome long clubaphobia. If you are having trouble with a particular club during a practice session, put it down. Continued practice with negative results will establish a negative pattern. You will begin to believe you can not swing that particular club. When the trouble starts switch to your favorite club. If your swing begins to break down go back to your favorite club. The idea is to keep switching until the problem club begins to feel no different than your favorite club. This method of problem solving takes discipline but, it will yield tremendous benefits.

PING

nunchuck

Last year PING had the best-selling driver in the G30 model. This year, their new PING G has attracted a new set of devotees to the PING clan.
What the G driver offers is what every golfer desires – faster club head and ball speed. Using proprietary Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition to combine for more efficient air flow, there is definitely a noticeable difference over the G30 version – all good.
The T9S Titanium face is thinner and hotter for maximum distance and deflection. The club’s adjustability with its 5-lobe hosel sleeve, allows ±1 degree of loft adjustment.
Another improvement is the DragonFly Technology –

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
