AXIS1 PUTTER REVIEW

Here is a review on the my recently received new AXIS1 ‘Joey” putter. I have been able to try the putter on the golf course and for a few drills at home and find that this is a very good product. I have tried about 6 different types of putter during my time playing the game and find this one the easiest to get used to.

For a good discussion you need to see the related video review by Justin Rose at https://youtu.be/g-Lk0kn85_4

There are a number of sources out there with various prices. In my opinion, at this time for someone looking for a change due it is a good choice. I have a problem with the backswing wabbling and not getting the club face back to the ball with the center of the club face at the ball. With all the training I have received I find this club the easiest and more stable during the backswing. The lighter ‘Joey’ blade model fits my eye well and I have reasonable distance control. The biggest improvement in my putting with this equipment is getting the ball on line.

I would recommend this product but it is the owner’s choice in the various models available (don’t just get Justin’s because he is a pro) based on your preference in the style from a blade to a large mallet like Justin’s.

Good luck by supporting the Greatest Game Ever…..

 

 

 

Stategies High Handicappers Should Learn

IS YOUR DRIVER THE CORRECT LENGTH?

There are a significant number of studies out there that have discussed the driver length. Recently my friends at GolfWRX issued an article on that subject. It would be better to discuss if speed (which translates to greater speed) is worth the losing control (which translates to accuracy). By personal experience I have found that searching the correct head and shaft is much better that the speed. I have searched and modified my drivers to a controlable length (personal = 44.5″). That length has also included additional changes in the shaft weight which has also affected the swingweight. For more reading on the subject I would suggest the following GolfWRX article:

IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO CUT DOWN YOUR DRIVER

Finding a good club fitter and repair technician would give you a good start on the potential cost of the upgrade. You can search further information from may of the forum sites around. I can also be contacted relative to how deep you wish to research the topic and I will give send you resources for some of the best reference materials available.

Does your practice swing help you?

The connection between your mind and your body has always been a great point of emphasis in golf. Lately one of my greatest instructors, Dr. T.J. Tomasi, currently at Keiser University in Palm Beach Florida, reminded me that there are some very special connections between the mind and the body. He reminds us that your last and greatest impression on your mind in advance of your next stroke is that Practice Swing. The special point here is that the Practice Swing must be the same full Stroke that you intend to execute on the actual shot to be taken. The cannot be a partial, slow motion swing without the commitment of the shop you are about to take.

Read the following link for better explanation of your best opportunity for shot success:

Let the Tracer be your Teacher

The image implanted in your mind with this swing though is the best asset to complete your actual stroke as intended.

HOW DOES YOU DRIVING DISTANCE COMPARE?

Comparative golf information is always being presented which is got some very interesting outcomes. Thanks to the gentlemen from GoflWRX I recently found an article which has some very interesting results. I can only assume that the information is gleaned from a data base which is actually based on fact. My only question is the distribution of the subject golfers based on index. I know for sure, by past experience, that there are golfer across the index range that use the quoted equipment. I would hope that a good statistical representation has been used to back up the information.

If you want to delve deeper into the facts and details of the study and information click on the following link:

The Average Driving Distance for Male Amateur Golfers by Age

This is one of the better articles but I am outside the information listed. Not having used the equipment quoted but watching my playing stats my golfing and physical age just don’t match.

FITSPATRICK VS DECHAMBEAU ON GOLF SKILLS

The latest argument in the golf world is about the ‘bomb and gouge’ players vs the traditionalist. Compare the stories from both sides of the pond about golf and some of the biggest names.

European Tour player Matthew Fitzpatrick’s comments on Bryson DeChambeau set off the first round. We have seen an upward trend of greater distance and statistically better play and these two are at the forefront right now. As you remember when Tiger Woods hit the golf stage there was a major change in the. Similar changes have been seen prior to that with great names in the game appearing include, but not limited to the likes of Palmer, Nickols, Jones & Hagen. There are many changes and variables which have occurred and depending on which learning you have will put you on the variable sides of the fence.

Distance has always been a good thing. Being able to use a wedge instead of a mid oer long iron has always been preferable. Link that with a good short game and the golfer surpasses everyone. The players ability to understand his game and what makes it the greatest set each player apart. For now the distance increase by DeChambeau is pushing him toward the front of the pack. Increasing the various points of his game will make him better.

My coaches and teachers have always told me that there are a number of adages which over the long run will prevail. From the ranks of the Professional golfers of the world the “Drive for Show and Putt for Dough” is the most prolific. The golf gods have a way of working around every aspect of the game and teach each of us our place in the game.

Keep you stats, practice your game and have fun will make this game better for all.
