He’s old, he’s past it, he’ll always lose aga… … pause… .. what!
It’s hard to believe, but it’s true! Tiger Woods won the Zozo Championship a week ago at the Accordia Golf Narashino CC (Japan) – tying Sam Snead for the most record-breaking wins.
Incredibly – even with his body that isn’t as capable as when he was in his 20’s, he had the option to hit numerous bombs more than 300 yards. With a decrease in speed (which is exceptionally basic as we age), how is he ready to at present stay aware of the youthful firearms?
For a long time, amplifying separation was a riddle. Not any longer!
Now we comprehend what makes separation. We know precisely what we need to do to get each and every ounce out of our swing speed.
We can likewise gauge these things – by means of innovation, for example, Trackman, GC Quad and Flightscope, we can get this show on the road information ready flight and club sway. Join this with a comprehension of how to change these ball-flight variables and we can add yards to essentially anybody’s down.
The 3 Factors
There are 3 fundamental factors that decide how far a ball flies noticeable all around.
Ball speed (how quick the ball falls off the face)
Dispatch point (how high the ball dispatches)
Turn rate (what number of RPM’s of reverse-pivot does the ball have)
When all is said in done, a higher dispatch, lower turn and higher ball speed is going to bring about more convey separation – all else being equivalent.
The higher dispatch and lower turn of the pink drive amplifies convey separation.
Tiger as of late expressed;
In the event that I need to hit the ball up, I tee it somewhat higher, move it up in my position possibly a large portion of a ball, and I’m truly dedicated to remaining behind the ball to send it.” (source – https://www.golfdigest.com/story/how-tiger-hits-a-bomb-when-he-needs-one?mbid=nl_102819_daily_tipoftheday)
This image shows precisely what that accomplishes for Tiger
How about we accept a gander at why Tiger’s recommendation works.
At the point when Tiger makes reference to “moving it up in my position” and “remaining behind it”, he is alluding to things which move the depressed spot increasingly behind the ball.
As a short token of what the depressed spot of a golf swing is – if you somehow managed to envision the direction of the clubhead during the golf swing as a circle;
Taking a gander at the base piece of that swing (somewhere near the ball), the depressed spot is the most reduced piece of that swing circle.
Prior to this point, the club is going down (negative approach). After the depressed spot, the club is going up (positive approach).
For most extreme separation, a positive approach permits us to draw nearer to (or accomplish) the ideal dispatch and turn attributes.
Tiger moves his depressed spot progressively behind the ball and hits up on it by “remaining behind the ball” and setting the ball farther forward in his position.
This shows the upward rising into the ball, by getting the depressed spot (dark vertical line) of the golf swing behind the ball
Tee It Up
Tiger additionally specifies teeing the ball somewhat higher than typical. There are 2 primary purpose behind this.
Right off the bat, in the event that you are hitting the ball on the upward piece of the swing circular segment (after the depressed spot – as Tiger does), the club will be higher starting from the earliest stage this second – see beneath pic
Note how the ball that is struck in the blue piece of the circular segment (upward approach) would require a higher tee to be struck from the sweet spot.
A typical tee stature would bring about a bested shot – or a strike which is low on the face (which murders separation), or the player would essentially hit the ground early.
Its absolutely impossible of hitting fundamentally up on the golf ball with a low tee without fixing it, hitting low on the face, or hitting the ground early (red star).
Teeing the ball higher permits the clubhead and ball to be at a similar tallness at sway.
The second explanation behind a higher tee tallness? There’s really a “mystery” place on the clubface that boosts separation.
At the point when we hit up on the golf ball, striking the face simply over the sweet spot (as appeared in the underneath picture) has the impact of
Expanding dispatch edge
The two of which help to expand separation.
Teeing up higher is bound to accomplish this, and is really an essential expansion to amplify separation on the off chance that we hit with an upward approach. Simply look how high lengthy drive champion XXXXXXX tees it up here
Simply teeing the ball up all alone, or moving the ball up in your position can be a catastrophe waiting to happen. We have to do both, together, on the off chance that we are to see accomplishment with the Tiger strategy.
On the off chance that you need to figure out how to do this without anyone else’s help, in The Strike Plan, I tell you the best way to;
Change depressed spot so you can accomplish a positive approach
Change circular segment stature, so you can hit the “mystery” spot on the face that streamlines dispatch and turn
Improve centeredness of strike (toe/heel) to augment ball speed (and directional consistency)
The Strike Plan is likewise committed to improving your iron game – disposing of shanks and toe shots, and striking the ball/turf simply like the geniuses.
