Here's why you need to get the new issue of Today's Golfer, including the best way to stop swinging "over the top".
A word from the editor:
"I once had a session on a swanky ENSO swing analyser in a secret room at Ping’s Arizona HQ. It was the same swing monitor the brand’s tour stars regularly use – it took 10 minutes to attach all the sensors to my head, arms, hips and shoulders, and the feedback you get from it is much more detailed than a regular launch monitor.
First swing... no numbers. Second swing... no numbers. Third swing... nothing. My clubhead was so far away from optimal that the machine refused to acknowledge it!
I’ve always had an over-the-top swing path, one that cuts across the ball at impact and imparts way too much spin that robs distance. In fact, once the operator had tweaked the settings to accommodate my “unique” action, he said I had a similar ball speed to Ping’s then star player Hunter Mahan... but my spin rate was triple his.
I’m not alone. A huge number of club golfers share a similar swing issue – but there is something we can do about it. Getting the clubhead in “the slot” is one of the big differences between good players and the rest of us. It means more speed, more distance, more consistency. So we got top coach Chris Ryan to show you how it's done."
