STRAIGHTER AND LONGER!
One of the benefits of an improved swing path is an improved ball flight in which the ball not only carries farther in the air but also rolls more on the ground, a fact supported by our study. The group with the most significant improvement in swing path (the club-thought group) also had the biggest gains in carry distance.
3 MORE CLUBHEAD CUES TO HELP YOU SWING INSIDE-OUT
1. Hit the inside-back quadrant of the ball with the center of the clubface.
2. Hit the ball to "right field," as though you were at home plate on a baseball diamond.
3. Hit a hook -- on purpose!
FIND THE RIGHT SWING CUE FOR YOU
Despite the growing scientific evidence that favors the use of club-based swing cues, body-oriented cues remain popular. Most teachers are unaware of the research suggesting that external cues are more effective. Let's face it -- it's human nature to think that we're the ones in control, not the club. But now you can get ahead of the game! If you've been using body-centered swing thoughts, consult the grid below to translate them into club-centered thoughts that may help you get better faster in key areas of your game.
