Golfer’s Blog – Bidwind And Swing Comprehension
More than anything else golf is a gear sport. We notice clearly if we are going on a golf trip and have a big and heavy bag. Perhaps we’re chanting to the table tennis player, who can have his tool in the computer bag, but it’s not a rewarding relative thought! However, it is rewarding to lean to the athletes who have far more equipment, such as sailing people. There can be sailboats on a ton …
As golfers we gain experience from the world that surrounds a golf course. We see a football match and notice that a football player is on one side of the ball and hits it on the left side to make it fly straight. Yes, the right leg flies inside from outside and around! We can recognize and easily transfer to golf, and we can get inspiration in all kinds of ball games.
We can also get a lot of inspiration from sports, like golf, outdoors and weather and wind.
Like golfers, most golfers like a lot of windswind and can get somewhat hot if there is a headwind. Perhaps it also applies to sailing, where an “agten-cross” gives top speed with full sailing and splinters.
But there is also a headwind on the sea, and then it must be crossed. To get from A to B, make some left and right stitches (starboard and backboard!). On a boat, such a headwind is called “bite wind.” (Not bite-wind but bite-wind). In English it is called “by the wind.” It can be understood as MED the wind – which is not the same as the wind …
The equipment on a boat is being treated in a completely different way. The sailing is tight to get as close to the counter-wind as possible and the player is saved far away …
Can we use it in golf?
So quite definitely.
Of course, we must have an effective counterwind stroke, and we need to use a mindset that reminds us of the concept of prayer wisdom.
First of all: Do you have a blow to a 120 meter green, which you would normally do with a 7-iron, then you will start to realize that if there is a headwind, the ball can die in air and fall vertically down maybe only 80 meters away.
What should we do? Beat harder Then comes the ball only 70 meters … Replace iron and use a 5-iron?
Not so rarely, we will find that a 5-iron headwind does not play more than maybe 100m.
We have to go another way around and instead look at the conditions under which our ball is to be played.
These conditions require some changes to us, just like a sailboat can not only increase the amount of sail in the headwinds – on the contrary.
On the contrary. It’s the keyword also in golf when we need to adjust for changing wins.
Is it hard? No – on the contrary! At the same time, a counter-wind stroke gives a crystal clear understanding of the wind and weather.
Can a 7-iron, which can be played 120 meters in quiet weather, play 120 meters in reverse? Surely, but what we need to think is that we have ten iron and hybrid with, and in a moment you will see that in reality you double or triple!
Nobody is in doubt about what a 7-iron is, but when you’re wearing it in the back of the golf course, it’s a lot more than “just a 7-iron.” Just as the big sail on a boat can be used Different: for main wind and for headwinds.
A 7-iron can be opened (added ceiling) and it can be closed (deloftes) – and you can grab it down and thus take some of the shank length away and you can swing your 7-iron half and full and quarter and You can play it as a downward stroke with a large peat and less descending with only a little contact with the grass after the battle.
Is a 7-iron a 7-iron a 7-iron anyway?
Well. In addition, there is a tendency in recent years that a 7-iron now more reminiscent of a 6-iron from the 90’s. (Hold on, we think when we get a new iron set: I’ll be longer with my new 7-iron !! The back of this medal is that it’s only the few that can beat with a 3- and 4- iron. But then we have to buy hybrid coolers!)
A 7-iron is not just a 7-iron, and it applies to all your iron and hybrids, and we must use it in the counter-wind for a good punch. We want a low drilling ball flight with the least possible backspin and with elements from “bidwind sailing.”
Perhaps you can already see the ball curve for you: It is reasonably low at the start and the climb is controlled. In addition, the battle starts to the right of the goal with a little side spin, which “by the wind” works against the goal.
Perhaps you belong to the type that hears something new, but give up after half a bucket balls when no results are found. Here’s the good news: You only need a quarter bucket balls, so you can hit!
Set up with your 5- or 6-iron (or 4-iron or a hybrid) and put a ball on a low tee.
Now there are a number of small adjustments that you can trim more or less after the headwinds strength – or: And it’s actually part of the point of learning this kind. Take the battle – even in tailwind – for example, on very long pairs of 3 holes, which you otherwise can not reach with “common” strokes.
You must lower the ceiling (delofte) by leaning the shaft slightly towards the target.
You must have the ball a little back in the stance
Your grip must not be too weak; rather (as always) strongly.
You need the most weight on your left foot – not just a pressure but weight. About 60% weight on left foot. The right foot may be pulled back slightly so you are slightly closed.
Your shoulder plan should be aligned to more horizontal than normal (where the right shoulder is low.) The direction of your shoulders towards your subset should follow your legs
Be sure to really hit the ball from the inside out. Put the ball on the tee with the ballmark at the bottom and closest to yourself so you can see it and aim for it. This is where the ball has to be hit.
You need a full shoulder twist, but out of the wrist on the top. In the swell you must clearly realize that the knit just above the hip has contact with your right elbow in the first part of the swell against the ball. It may help the feeling that the stomach is retracted before swung into the ball clearly from the inside out.
The shoulder plane of the 5 ensures that you get more flat around and through both arms stretched straight to your goal (to the right of the flag) before closing in full balance.
If the ball becomes too flat, you have hit more than you have turned. If possible, make the turnback slower – say, for example, “HER-ER-BIT-TE-” and start swapping on “FIND.”
Once you are completely familiar with the battle, you can also beat it without using tees and note your always clear draw, which can be controlled in turn and turn. Try yourself and trim yourself; practice the battle and use it as “every other kind,” when you train the rank.
Similarly, there is a good little change to the driver in the headwind: Tee the ball high so that you avoid the mistake of knocking down the ball and turning more into the ball, which can be moved slightly back into the ball. Possibly you can grab a bit for better control. Make sure your arms are stretched completely after ball training and before finishing.
A good exercise may be to put a short tee in the middle of your stance, which you must not hit on the way to the ball on the toe at the left foot.
