Through the Years- Mechanics, or the positions we adopt before we begin our swing, have been debated and compared for many years. At the end of this journey, we should be ready to agree that the only thing that has changed significantly is equipment.
The ball goes farther and straighter now than it ever has.
That said, the manner in which we produce high quality golf shots is basically the same. And for that we should be thankful.
Professional golfers are more physically fit than ever before but clean mechanics, more than anything else, is what keeps a good player playing consistent golf.
For the last 100 years, swings take on an individual look during the backswing, only to draw into a very similar positions as they approach impact. Some of our swing is negotiable but impact is not.
What, when, and how? “Release” is the coined phrase in golf jargon that refers to the presentation of the club to the ball through impact. I believe it implies “allowing” something to happen much more than making it happen. By this, I mean, that our golf swing is judged by the entirety of the motion and not by an individual hitting movement at impact that is separate from the swing before that point.
Right Arm Motion Through Impact:
This is just a look at “feel and real.” I believe our right arm goes a long way to bring consistency to our shot pattern or give us ZERO chance of ever controlling a golf ball.
Analysis of Tour Pros Wedge Action
Tour pros see their wedge game as an insurance policy. To compete they must shoot low rounds and their ability to recover is the glue that keeps a round together.
DIVERSE SHORT GAME-
We know you will likely face turmoil in every round you play. You need an “insurance policy” to hold your round together on those days when you are not striking the ball as you normally do. To be a successful tournament golfer, the ability to score well on your bad day is vital. Also, quality golf courses provide a test that says you will only be given a limited number of chances at birdie, and you MUST capitalize on those chances. It will be your versatility with your wedges that allow you to compete at any level.
