Scots Golf Ball Flight Teaser

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Here's a teaser on ball flights. What are the two ball flights that do not have a name. I.e there are 2 shots you can hit that do not come under one of the 9 ball flights described.

@Scots Golf,

 

Are you talking about good shots or worm burner/daisy cutter type shots?

No, proper golf shots

Is there a point to this?

 

Otherwise it's off topic.

You were talking about ball flight laws so I suppose it is relevant.

Well then get on with it already.

A shot starts left of target, curves to the right yet still finishes left of target. Similarly there's no name for the shot that starts right, curves to the left yet still finishes right of intended target.

You misread the chart. The chart has nothing to do with the target. It's relative to your alignment.

 

You can hit a push-draw that finishes right, left, or on your target. It's still a push draw.

A draw is just a draw surely. You can't hit a pull draw so why a push draw.

Ps what chart do you mean? Also do you not measure every shot relative to a target.

Who says you can't hit a pull draw? Face is pointing left of target at impact and path is outward - bam - pull draw. Also known as a snap hook, duck hook, shitty shot, etc...

I moved this to its own thread, as it clearly doesn't belong in the other thread.

 

@Scots Golf: A ball that curves right but doesn't reach the target is still a fade.

Not by the definitions of the ball flights it's not. We would call it a fade however.

That post is a response to whom? Please quote.

 

If you're referring to @cfritchie, then a ball that curves right from a lefty is a draw.
