All golfers want to emulate the best golfers, the touring professionals. But many times, in their swings, in their approach to the game, in their practice habits, recreational players wind up doing the opposite of the touring pros.
A slicer starts the TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB Irons 2014 back slightly inside. Then, at the transition from backswing to downswing, our slicer raises his hands; his back shoulder raises before dropping forward - resulting in the downswing going from outside to inside. This is what's meant by "over the top."
But the pros are exactly the opposite. They start the club slightly outside. Then, as they transition from backswing to downswing, they lower their back shoulder, drop it down. Their hands lower and clubshaft flattens out, in order to get the club on a slightly inside-to-outside path.
Look at practice habits. When a recreational player hits the driving range, what is the TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons 2014 most commonly used for practice? The driver. Recreational players love to grip-it-and-rip-it, and chasing more yards so you can outdrive your buddies on the weekend is important.
And about practice putts: You've seen those recreational players who pick the most difficult putt on the practice green. The one that's 40 feet in length, over two ridges and with three breaks. If you haven't see that recreational player, then you are that recreational player.
Amateurs spend far too much of their time on practice greens with TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver worrying about break. When the pros practice putting, they concentrate on speed, not break. And they rarely practice anything other than straight putts. In fact, many do not even putt at the cup. They putt to and from imaginary (or real, if they marked the green) lines, trying to control their distance.
