    Notes on video:
    • M3 – 10.5º – weights forward (and CG forward) for lower spin
    • Twist Face – tighter spin rate cluster between toe and heel hits
    • “I don’t hit in the middle of the face!”. “CLINK” – 123/186mph 2100rpm!
    • “Right miss is okay, left miss no!”
    • “Lifty” to outside in backswing… try to keep it low back and wide thru.
    • “Subtle differences in golf swing.”
    • Arched left wrist at top for closed/square clubface at impact.
    • Speed & Control. No full out swing -85-90% of max speed.
    • Cutting ball last 2 years… before drawing ball!
    • Can’t overdo it… open chest to cover ball especially with irons.
    • Swing at 8:40 — 121/180/2108 … smash factor = 1.48 wow!!!
    • Swing at 12:07 with vicious left knee flexing up through impact!!!
    • Swing at 14:00 – Augusta 18th hole… 120/179/2725rpm for a big fade and likely an open face high toe hit too … 🙂

      Ooops… got the last point wrong where I said “… a big fade and likely an open face high toe hit…”.
      Here’s the correction taken from a previous WRX/JD/TM article:
      ““Twist Face” is TaylorMade’s new design that makes the high-toe area of the face more open and more lofted, and the low heel portion more shut and lower lofted. The goal here is to reduce the slice off the low heel and reduce the hook off the high toe. For Dustin, he seemed most excited to get relief on his high-toe miss.”
      So it was a “slice off the low heel” that we saw on the video.

Master your takeaway with force and torques

Published

on

Most golf swings last less than 2 seconds, so it’s difficult to recover from any errors in the takeaway. Time is obviously limited. What most golfers fail to realize is that the force and torque they apply to the club in the initial stages of the swing can have major effects on how they are able to leverage the club with their arms and wrists.

Our research has shown that it is best to see the golfer as a series of connected links with the most consistent golfers transferring motion smoothly from one link to another and finally to the club. Approximately 19-25 percent of all the energy created in a golf swing actually makes its way into the motion of the club. That means the remaining 75-80 percent is used up in moving the body segments. This emphasizes the fact that a smooth takeaway is your best chance sequence the body links and become more efficient with your energy transfers.

In the video above, I give a very important lesson on how the forces and torques applied by the golfer in the takeaway shape the rest of the swing. There will be more to come on the subject in future articles.
