The biggest difference between Tour players and the rest of us? They
know they’re going

turn any swing into
one that gives you
total control of
every shot.

good news, however, is you don’t need a

ball the way you want to without the
complications that result from trying to

pleasantly surprised at how these
shortcuts will improve the overall quality
and consistency of your shots.
