Up, Up and Away
Look at J.B.'s feet they're almost off the ground! This gives you an idea of how much force he generates in his swing. Holmes can reach clubhead speeds in excess of 135 mph. While other players are able to match this number, J.B. gets more out of his swing than anyone, consistently launching it 20 yards longer than even the biggest hitters on Tour. His secret: hitting up through the ball at impact.
His extended arms create a massive amount of speed that is transferred through his hands to the club.
His shaft angle ascends into the ball, producing a high-launch, low-spin drive for pure power.
J.B.'s hips rotate tremendously against his firm left side.
