In this video, we discuss the topic of spin in golf and how to achieve it effectively. Many amateurs believe that in order to generate spin on the ball, they need to swing down or steeply at the golf ball. However, this is a common misconception. Spin is actually created by three key factors: crisp contact, clubhead speed, and a slightly open club face. In this video, professional golfer Jim Furyk demonstrates how to generate spin and control distance on a shot. Let’s dive in and learn from the expert himself.
In this article, we learned from professional golfer Jim Furyk about generating spin and controlling distance on a golf shot. Furyk debunked the misconception that swinging down or steeply is necessary to create spin. Instead, he highlighted the importance of crisp contact, clubhead speed, and a slightly open club face. Opening the club face allows for more spin and the ability to swing harder for increased distance. Furyk also emphasized the significance of rhythm in controlling distance. By understanding these techniques, golfers can improve their spin and distance control on the course.
