Ball Flight Control

Let us see if we can shed some intelligent and logical light on this titled subject.

Ball Flight is simply about ‘Compression and Line Of Compression’. If one sets up perfectly on his or her ‘Railway Tracks’ (see ‘The 5 Set-Ups – ALIGNMENT’) and makes a perfect strike, in ‘Zero Wind’, the ball will ‘Launch and Fly’ directly ‘Down The Target Line or Target Rail’. If the ground elements are perfect the ball shall ‘Roll Out’ relatively straight.

If you alter the ‘Railway Tracks’ (ALIGNMENT, open or closed) with the same perfect ‘5 Set-Up’ or ‘5 Essential Elements’, the ball flight shall be simply to the Open or Closed direction. This is simply as if you were to move the fairway centerline! We have talked about the ‘Sherman Tank Metaphor’. If you rotate the turret, the bullet shall simply fly in the adjusted direction.

If you alter ‘The Clubface Aim’ through the ‘Impact & Separation Zone’, you shall get altered results that comply with your ‘C/F Aim Conditions’. An Open C/F Aim will fly to the ‘Low Energy Segment’ (Fade Slice) while a Closed C/F Aim will fly to the ‘High Energy Segment’. (Draw Hook) Thus, if your ball flight is trending to ‘Draw Hook’, the first element you should alter is your ‘C/F Aim’. Strive to hit a ‘Fade Slice’ without altering your ‘Alignment – Turret’. One can alter ‘Clubhead Path’ to ‘Inside-Out, Square or Outside-In’. This is like behaviour of the ‘Hammer Head’ … altering the path by which the ‘Center Of Mass’ approaches the ‘Ballistic Point’ of the nail head. (see ‘Bottom Inside Cheek of the Ball’ – Red Dot)(see ‘Push – Pull’)

To a fine point! Think of your ‘Lower Body Machine’ (LBM – Core) as the soles of your feet to the top of your head. This primary segment (‘Pivot Engine’) produces all the ‘Horizontal Movement or Round & Round’. It must cooperate in a timely manner with The Upper Body Machine’. (see ‘UBM – Lever Assemblies’) If the ‘LBM’ is ‘Brace Leg Drive’ energy and rotational ‘Speed Deficient or Passive’, the ‘Clubface Aim and C/H Path’ shall fall out of sync causing the Ball Flight to become errant. Your hands shall outrun your core … what we refer to as ‘Arms Over Legs.’ Your ’Ball Flight’ can be painfully truthful. You shall soon know ‘Cause & Effect’! You can actually become your own golf teacher? Enjoy that reality!
