Seems everyone chases distance these days — or at least they want to try.
Today DogLegNews instructional guru and world-class long driver Josh Koch brings in bio-mechanist Scott Lynn to take a scientific look at how power is generated in the golf swing.
Lynn, who works with many PGA Tour players, has world-class long driver Justin James on his computer and takes a look at how James generates power in his swing.
Note that long drivers do some things different than Tour players, some of them significant.
One thing you’ll want to take notice of is James’ position at impact. It’s something we can all learn from. Notice where his head is at impact — it’s well behind the ball, back with his right shoulder.
That’s something everyone should work on. One of the things that Jack Grout drilled into a young Jack Nicklaus was the importance of the head position in the golf swing. It needs to stay in a steady spot and at impact, it needs to be well back of the club when it makes contact with the golf ball.
James is a world-class launcher, that’s for sure.
So sit back and enjoy Scott Lynn showing us some real heady stuff.
