One can only influence ‘Ball Flight Behaviour’ by increasing 1) Distance, 2) Direction and 3) Vertical Shape. (Trajectory or Parabola)
Let us firstly assume you have a perfected ‘Set-Up.
Let us assume we want the ‘Factory Designed Trajectory of a #8 Iron. Then ‘Pull It’! It you want more or less ‘Trajectory’ (Vertical Shape) pull more or less club.
We have been very limiting herein as we are allowing ONLY our ‘Universal Set-Up. The magic ‘Silver Bullet Of Our Personal Game’. We can make this happen in the ‘Heat Of Battle’. In fact, if the heat gets ‘Turned-Up’, we should get even better under pressure! Is that amazing or what?
How might we alter our ‘Set-Up Conditions’ to alter our ‘Ball Flight Outcomes’?
- Ball Location: Move it forward to increase Trajectory (Prescribed Delivered Loft). Move it aft if we want to decrease the ‘Trajectory’. With the Set-Up change make the same swing … period!
- Alter your ‘Weight Distribution’. If you shift your weight ‘Forward’ that mechanical change will alter your ‘Angle Of Attack’. (AoA) That will alter your ‘Impact Conditions’. ‘Forward Spinal Tilt’ will create ‘Less Delivered Loft’ and thus a ‘Lower Ball Flight Trajectory’. If you shift your weight ‘Aft’ that will alter your ‘Angle Of Attack’ and accomplish more ‘Delivered Loft’.
- Alter your ‘Spine Angle’. More Aft Tilt, as opposed to ‘Weight Shift’ will also increase your accomplished ‘Trajectory’. Less ‘Aft Tilt’ or what is more ‘Forward Tilt’ will increase your ‘AoA’ and decrease your ‘Clubface Loft’. You can also, when you have earned the finesse, keep your ‘UBM – Lever Assemblies’ more ‘Deep Flat & Wide’ and employ more ‘Sweep’. This will also ‘Decrease Your Net Delivered Loft’. Use the same ‘Universal Swing’ … gut basics!
Notice how, with a normal ‘Set-Up’ one simple and single ‘Component Change’ can alter your ‘Outcomes’. Work at becoming a ‘Finesse Golfer’. It is your reputation at stake!
It is your parade!
