When is the last time you carefully considered Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Ball Speed, Sweet Spot (Impact Point), Smash Factor, Angle Of Attack (AoA), Launch Angle or Approach, X and Y Axis Spin Rate, Carry Distance, Trajectory, Parabolic Behaviour (Apex) and more. Are each of these items ringing a clarion bell for you … a clean and pure sound?
Swing speeds below 85 mph will benefit from a high launch angle and a high spin rate. The reason is simple physics. (see ‘Bournoulli’s Theorm’ and ‘The Venturi Effect’) More spin generates more lift, which can help the ball stay in the air longer and accomplish increased carry distance. At lower speeds, the drag and energy lost in creating spin are offset by the improvement in distance caused by the increased time in the air.
With ‘Clubhead Speeds’ in excess of 85 to 100 miles per hour, science and physics is different! How about 140 MPH on the screws? It is a demanding challenge to make a golf ball travel out there in excess of 300 yards! Fewer athletes accomplish that feat than one might think!
