Expert golfers that make the ball go very far get a club head speed of about 100 miles per hour. Tiger Woods is an exception because he was once clocked at 125 miles per hour. However the proper golf swing has another factor and that is the lie angle. For those who don't know what this is, it is the angle between the club shaft and the club face. If You have a golf swing monitoring machine, You'll see that most golfers hit the ball at 12 degrees. One scientist believes that players can do better if they strike the ball at a 7.5 degree lie angle.

To do that, you should know the 4 basics.

First, at the back of the swing, you should stretch as far back and extend the range of motion while maintaining your rotating torso directly over your right leg. Second, when you begin your swing with burner 2.0 irons, turn your torso quickly and press down on your right leg. Next, drive through the ball using your hips, shoulders and wrists which will all help increase your ball speed. Last of all, let the club head's momentum extend to the follow through far around the back so you do complete a smooth club head rotation.

You must keep in mind that the golf swing mentioned is far different when you are stuck in a sand trap because there is something blocking your way and you have to go over that. To do that, you have to strike the sand behind the ball using the club head. How far will the ball pass through depends on the distance between the club head and the sand.

In both instances, a professional golfer must be able to adapt with the surroundings and the weather. If the winds are strong, you cannot hit the ball at 7.5 or 12 degrees every time. The rule of thumb is that when the wind is coming from behind you, you must use a club that has a greater lie angle. If the wind is coming to you from the front, you must use a club from burner 2.0 irons for sale online shop with a smaller lie angle. If you do not follow these rules, the ball won't travel far or you may end up with a slice or a hook.

Making the right golf swing is very difficult. That's why professionals practice more than 8 hours a day because they know that there are factors beyond their control and the weather is a very important factor.
