I talk about swing integrity a lot which means the balance between distance and accuracy, modern swings start to spread balls at a given distance then you want to keep your swing speed in that level to keep up consistency and especially accuracy with dispersion.
The Mike Austin swing mechanics adds around a 80 yard distance increase within the same or better accuracy.
The amateur can then expect a 300+ yard driving outhitting even the best on the PGA tour.
The logic is simple, easier more efficient motion allows you to add more speed without having to do a lot of gym and work outs. True, if your stronger and tall that will add more distance obviously than a shorter weaker individual.
However, most wont believe this due to Adam Young posted an article how to hit long that he has world experts on bio mechanics telling him he is correct.
Normally I ask, do those bio mechanical experts hit the golf ball 300+ yards?
The answer will be no.
Isn’t that fun say?
To do a complex action the way people do learn golf swings today is beyond even the best pros. They cant maximize their distance and improve their accuracy as if you hit longer you can also dial down and be even more accurate.
One issue is beliefs, when Hans tells me, dude I hit my 2i the same distance I hit driver last year and I say, isn’t that a good thing then? What typically happens is that people have a specific logic to how things works in golf and other fields, that logic btw is questioned when I come and do what I do due to I am able to do magic.
Atm I am working to implement the template I developed, 6 practice sessions and I have the essence down and expect to have it all working shortly. At age 53 and 165cm tall I am not 195cm tall like Mike Austin or as tall as Hans for that matter. Still checking what I just did yesterday with a 9i at 160 steps carry in the 1c temperature means I should be able to have a 9i into summer temps in the range of 160m or more. That is also with the early implementation as I found the core throw mechanic. The field I hit during this time of year is running short. Soon I be able to go to my benchmark range where there is a valley type so one can see where the ball lands as its uphill there.
I have no idea what distances I be able to do as this is the first time I am doing this.
I can only do what I do, measure the distances hit, then as I improve and stabilize my mechanic find out what that distances are for me.
The recent swing adjustment I did for Hans added up to 3 iron clubs of increased distance.
For any tour pro that’s a distance addition they have a hard time to accept even believe in due to people as golfers believe distance increase cant be done like that without gym and a load of talent. Your stuck in what people have told you and you then created this mental model of golf in how it works and then when someone as myself comes along all that is then in jeopardy as I can do shit people don’t even know exists.
I added 50 yards in less than 2 minutes first time with Hans in his old modern swing mechanic, funny thing he hits a lot longer now with the RBIm swing btw……………………
If it was simply the swing that did the scoring it be easy.
The golf swing distance is fun for sure but once you can hit it long you then as anyone else will ask, how do I do this more consistently hitting more greens, closer to the hole etc…
If Anna Nordqvist can make 75% of Gir, but loose out with 2.5 putts worse than the best each round there is a correlation between her proximity to the hole and her making putts. She is either to far away or are misreading putts all the time. Tour pros guess when they read putts, I don’t.
So, if one asks, if I can hit a given distance let say 300 yards then a normal golf course is short. If you can hit 350 yards than any golf course that people say is long is normal even short for such a player.
The increased distance allows you an advantage.
If your able to do better with it is unknown as we see with Anna that she cant score low due to her short game isn’t good enough in spite of her hitting 75%+ GIR on average.
So you want every skill that matters as good as possible not just distance even though it does help
