Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by! It's a very slow week in the golf business so we'll let The Golf Drill Guru entertain us. Tonight he shows us how to put spin on the golf ball.
For all of you who wish you could spin the ball like the professionals, I have one question for you…
How often do you actually land the ball past the hole?
I reckon for most of you, landing short happen nine times out of ten… but keeping this question in mind, backspin would allow you to be much more aggressive with your irons. Not to mention it looks so cool…
Here goes… the secrets to more backspin:
1) You need a high-energy ball with a soft cover. High performance golf ball’s are imperative to creating spin. Distance balls have very hard covers and the grooves on the club cannot grab the ball enough to impart a maximum amount of spin. Start spending $6 a ball, rather than a dozen and you will see a difference.
2) Your club’s grooves need to be clean and clear. Grass and dirt in your club’s grooves impede its ability to grab the ball’s cover to impart spin.
3) Your angle of attack cannot be too steep. If your downswing is too steep and you trap the ball, you’d be hard pressed to get much in terms of spin. Your club must make contact with the bottom half of the ball and at an angle.
4) Acceleration. This factor is by far the most important; you have to accelerate into impact to make backspin. Slowing down in golf, is rarely a good thing.
5) Your lie must be clean. I think it goes without saying a fairway lie is far batter than a lie in the rough. This is because there is less grass for the grooves to sift through, leading to better groove on ball contact.
6) Your ball position must be in the proper place to allow for the proper angle of attack. Having the ball either too far forward or too far back in your stance will change your angle of attack dramatically. Ideally it should be very near the center of your stance.
Incorporating these secrets into your golf game and you will see a dramatic increase in the amount of spin and control you have over your irons.
