Great stuff–Thank you!!
what is the impact location of this research, as the golfers I teach mostly hit the top or bottom of the club face but rarely the middle.
How also does the impact location affect launch and spin rate? Why is this not taken into consideration, especially as so many pro’s are trying to hit higher in the face for higher launch and lower spin
I have problems getting ballspeed ( increasing smash factor ) according to my clubheadspeed. indoor center with camera gives me central hitting, slight draw, but only a smash factor of 1.36 to 1.40. Clubheadspeed lies around 103 to 106 m/h. Topspeed up to 110 m/h. Driver loft 9,5 degrees and launch Angle around 13 degrees. I would be most grateful for an advice.
Thank you for your comments.
It’s nice that you have cameras, but another more simple thing you can do, is spray your club face with dr scholl foot spray or similar.
Are you using range balls or premium balls? If you are using range balls, try with a premium ball.
Also check the settings in our software and see if the correct ball type is selected.
With that swing speed you can probably improve that smash factor to 1.45 to 1.47 if you deloft your shot slightly but positioning your hands further forward in relation to your ball. Setup the ball on the inner side of your lead foot, and open the club face slightly, ensure your hands lead the club head on impact and your wrists are flat. See a pro to ensure your alignment and posture are correct and try this setup.
