I mentioned that I was going to try to get to a testing facility this week to get some numbers to feature in the upcoming “Project 2018”video**, and I got out to one yesterday!
**Note: The Advance Order window with the Early Bird discount which I re-opened closes after Sunday night and will remain closed until release day. Thanks to everyone who has already placed your orders!
I don’t know how many of you roll your eyes when they start raving about driving distances on the telecasts during PGA Tour events, but I have something here that shows just how out of control things are.
We already know that you’re going to get eye-popping numbers when driving the ball on fairways that are cut faster than the average public green, but I have to say, 50 yards roll-out is just silly.
I spent some time at the range yesterday, and I’m telling you friends, all I’ve been needing since the long winter has finally ended is some swing work and practice time to get the “swing machine” going full steam.
I’ll keep saying it, because sometimes the most obvious thing is the one that people keep overlooking, and when it comes to fixing swing flaws, most of them begin right at address.
I spent years thinking that the way to fix a certain swing flaw (over the top, early heel lift, etc.) was to find the proper mechanics, and that’s what all the golf magazines and “tip” experts on television are doing.
