I would like to give this comment 26 thumbs up, but we're not supposed to use reputation points in a sarcastic manner. So I'll just say gitafterit.
I hit a PW that flew about 165 on Sunday. I had a thick lie in the rough so I swung about as hard as I could, but the ball just squirted out. I guess 165 is my new wedge number now. Should I be on tour?
My mechanics are fine. At least my fundamentals. I aim fine, my stance is fine, my grip is correct, and my setup is perfect. My swing consists of a backswing and a through swing. Only 1 percent of golf is the swing. The rest is setup. Jack Nicklaus said that the setup is 99 percent of shot making. And I agree. When you aim way left even if you make a perfect swing the shots going left. If you aim at the target then most likely with a bad swing your shot will go closer to the target than aiming way left.
Another point I'd like to make is that Moe Norman was the best golfer that ever lived. He aimed at his target and pulled the trigger. He had a strange golf swing which when I try to use I cant get the ball airborne, which proves that the golf swing doesn't truly make a difference. Some say it was moe's swing that made him hit every shot straight, yet when I watched him, he was making the same setup same swing yet he said he would fade the ball and it curved left to right just as he said. i'm not worried about my swing. I just hit the ball with the club. and it gives me great results.
Try to top a golf ball on purpose. Then try to thin it. Fat it. Shank it. If you can mishit shots on purpose, then you can strike a golf ball perfectly without worries. I can do anything with a golf ball. my handicaps so high because ive only ever played ten rounds in my entire life, but practiced hiting balls every single day. so my scores will dramatically drop if I play more.
Swinging hard gets the ball farther. its only logical.
