The golf ball reacts to the position of the club and supporting
position of the body at the moment of impact. Simply, a great shot meant that
you were in your most efficient impact position, and that is your goal.
The good news is that you all can create great impact AND its
quite natural. The bad news is that because the ball is so light (less than 2
ounces), there are literally thousands of ways to move this ball somewhere.
There are really too many options available to each golfer… its like trying to
find a needle in the haystack.
Imagine using your same club in an attempt to move a
16-pound bowling ball or a heavy bean bag. How many options do you have now?
Its the ball's fault! I have videotaped dozens of players striking a bean
bag-type training device. At the moment of impact with the bag, it is
difficult to distinguish an accomplished player from a beginner. Its true!
Unfortunately, view these same two players striking a golf ball and WOW,
impact looks very different. Why does this happen? The poorer player at some
point became content with a better ball flight and decided to spend the rest
of their golfing days trying to maintain that swing; which is fine if this is
your goal, but be warned, you will never find your potential… you have stopped
short of the MOST efficient swing you could create.
The accomplished player pushed on, and did not settle for
mediocrity. They are on a mission to keep improving their swing so that the
powerful strike needed to move the heavy object is duplicated against the
light golf ball. Its the balls fault, but the difference is up to you!
