We’ve talked this point to death. He didn’t put on 40lbs of lean muscle mass. His size gains are normal for someone whose daily caloric intake and workout routine has significantly increased over the course of a year or possibly longer.
He’s always seemed like an entitled tool to me, even before the transformation.
The answer to both of these for me is no. Gaining swing speed without being accompanied by an increase in accuracy would make golf harder for me. And holy shit that thing is expensive.
Why would you assume that, though? I’d assume most people would see similar results as the guy in the video. If I could gain 20 yards and hit it straighter it’s a no brainer.
I'm going to be brief because this is off topic.
There's more to it than that.
If the path and the face are 5° off, the spin axis will be significantly less dramatic with an 8I than a driver.
It would not be.
The 8I is hit on a much higher launch angle with much less ball speed (forward ball speed), so that plays a big role in how the ball behaves. Even if you could match up the spin lofts, the ball will still curve less. (It would also see the spin rates drop more, too, because the ball would be in the air much longer, so spin rate decay would be much higher.)
It does and it doesn't.
What you're not considering is that most people, to deliver "more spin," do so by increasing the spin loft, which reduces the amount of axis tilt (as my video explains).
The initial claim is more accurate than it is not.
Spent 45 minutes on the putting green today. Stayed focused on 15' and in with bulk of all practice from 10' and in. All distances and putted everything out.
After analyzing my last round I need to focus on short game from 100 yards in. That has been my single largest area of lost strokes this season.
