The Railway Track

Adverse Spin Rates Are Chronic

‘Ball Flight Shape’ is no accidental circumstance or event. It is advantageous for our Driver to get the ball up into the air substantially. Properly done, this ‘Controlled Collision’ produces ‘Height and Distance’. (see ‘Trajectory and Parabola’ … straight climb vs. arching flight) If you create only ‘Go Up’ with little or no ‘Under Spin’ (Equatorial vs Polar Spin Rate) your ball will “Mush” its way through the air with lackluster outcomes. (see ‘Minimized Height and Carry Distance’) “Adverse Spin Rates” are detrimental to ‘Big Golf Smiles’!

See if this ‘Railway’ anecdote helps the topic become clarified? The stage is a straight flat railway track (steel rail). Your teeing ground could be this rail. Let us assume a couple conditions. Driver Face has ‘No Loft’. The ball is 1.5 inches in diameter. There is a ball teed up on the rail. It’s equatorial line is set 1 inch above the rail. The Clubface is about 2 inches tall so a collision on the ‘Center Of Mass’ (Sweet Spot) is likely.

The sole of the ‘ZERO LOFTED DRIVER’ (for this discussion) is sliding along the rail. The ‘Angle Of Attack’ is also ‘Zero or Flat’ … no Ascension or Descent. This golf ball shall fly flat to the rail until it runs out of ‘Kinetic Energy’ and bounces of the rail. The ‘Initial Launch Angle’ is also ‘Zero’. The ball is NOT going up! No ‘Trajectory or Parabola’! This ball will obviously have very little ‘Carry Distance’. It may be a ‘Daisey Cutter’ or ‘Worm Burner’?

What would be a more productive ‘Driver Set-Up and Execution’? Generally, tee the ball up an inch higher. The sole of the driver will be an inch higher. The ‘Sweet Spot’ travels ‘UP’ through the Impact & Separation Zone’. (10 degree Ascension) Let us assume that there is 10 degrees of ‘Loft’ on the ‘Clubface’. That means our simplistic ‘Launch Angle’ is 20 degrees.

Other elements exist in this equation. ‘Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment’. (The 5 Set-Ups) Moving the ball forward gives the ‘Center Of Mass’ more ‘Climb or Ascend Time and Distance’. Perhaps the end-result might now be a 30 degree net ‘Ball Launch Angle’ and a resulting ‘Parabolic Flight’? Also consider The 5 Essential Elements … ‘Clubface Aim at the Moment Of Separation, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot and Angle of Attack’. ‘Golf’ loves repetitive details!
