“Why Doesn’t My Practice Swing Match The Real One?” Pt 2 – Mine Does!

I wrote a blog post last year in which I addressed the issue that frustrates so many swingers – “Why Doesn’t My Practice Swing Match My Actual Swing?”

The short answer was that in the practice swing, you don’t have to worry about the impact conditions.

Day 2 – Just About There! (Swing Gif.s)

The Advance Orders¬†window for the upcoming “Project 2018” video has closed and thanks to everyone who reserved their copy in advance!

I was able to get out to the facility today, and it’s been nearly a month (four weeks on Wednesday) since I got in the first and only day of swinging this year, due to the cold/rain and then last week’s ice storm.

Industry Exec – Equipment/Ball Doesn’t Help Avg Golfer Drive It Longer

This should send a chill down the spine of all the club manufacturers, and I bet they’re hoping no one reads the quote connected to this title post.

To make it short and sweet, modern equipment hasn’t helped the average golfer drive it longer – in fact, the average drive distance of the average golfer has fallen from 2015 to 2018 (and I can’t believe how short the average golfer drives stats, to be honest).

Rory McIlroy Showing How It’s Done – Crazy Driver Stats!

rory mcilroyIt looks like Rory McIlroy is finally getting some proper equipment (I mean, who really plays Nike clubs without being paid to do it?), and the results are spectacular.

Rory Mac is one of the longest drivers on the PGA Tour, and he’ll be moving up on that list, if these numbers below carry out… and if you want to know how he’s doing it – athletic talent counts for a lot, but if you haven’t noticed¬†this, you haven’t been paying attention!

Jack Nicklaus – Effortless Long Driver

Nicklaus-SwingCentersJack Nicklaus wasn’t as long a hitter as, say, Sam Snead, but he was a power player for sure, and he blew it past even players like Arnie Palmer as a young gun.

Whereas Palmer player bomb and gouge golf compared to the likes of Hogan and Byron Nelson, Nicklaus was a long driver who like to keep it in play, and he used his prodigious length off the tee to overpower courses.
