Here's Today's Tip ... Importance of Loft
Ryu So-Yeon, South Korean professional golfer, a two-time major winner having won the 2011 US Women's Open and the 2017 ANA Inspiration. On June 26, 2017, Ryu became only the 11th No. 1 ranked golfer in the Rolex Rankings by virtue of winning her 5th LPGA Tour title at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.

Golf, like most games... is something you need to practice and play in order to improve. However, it's during this time that the game of golf can become very frustrating.

The "Driver" is a difficult club to control. So, if you are a beginner I recommend "the more loft, the better"...

Unless you're a strong and well-coordinated athlete experienced with stick and ball sports (baseball, softball, hockey, tennis, for example), opt for woods that have more loft. Why? The extra loft generally means it will be easier to get the ball in the air and also can reduce sidespin so shots fly straighter. So go for drivers with at least 10 degrees of loft and fairway woods that start at 17 degrees, not 15 degrees.

Now for the more advanced golfer who is looking for some extra distance, you want to start with your "lag".

Let me ask you a couple of questions, are you consistently one of the shortest hitters in your group every round of golf you play? Do you struggle to reach long par-4’s in two and need to use a lot of hybrids and 3-woods for your approach shots?

If either of these sound like you it's likely you find it difficult to create lag in the golf swing and are desperate for that extra bit of power to help make the game easier...

Well you’re not alone, most golfers I see struggle for distance and as a result find golf a lot more difficult than it needs to be.

Believe me, there is a big difference to hitting an 8-iron into a par-4 than a hybrid or 3-wood and it makes it much easier shoot a lower score.

Below are the 6 main reasons for loss of lag in your golf swing.

1. Casting

2. Incomplete shoulder turn

3. Small swing arc

4. Incorrect weight shift

5. Strong grip pressure

6. Dominant right side

The good news is it’s not as difficult as you might think to hit longer golf shots...
