Spin: friend or foe?

How can you influence spin rates?
Manufacturers have long known that regular golfers needed a higher launch angle on tee shots. For a while, they tried to urge golfers to play super-high lofted drivers. But while increasing the dynamic launch angle (the actual angle the ball launches), it also created the side-effect of too much backspin for many.
By fixing a very common swing fault, most golfers can increase the launch angle and lower spin rates to increase distance off the tee substantially.
Many golfers have a slight downward angle of attack on the ball with a driver, but that has the effect of lowering launch angle and increasing spin rate. A very poor scenario for most golfers.
21 extra metres
TrackMan data shows us that a golfer with an 80mph swing speed who changes their angle of attack from -5° to +5° increases their dynamic launch angle by 4°, but even more importantly reduces their spin rate by over 1,000rpm. And that means 21 extra metres.

Don’t let spin rob you

It’s time to do something

A staggering fact
Scientific research indicates that, despite the medical advances that are curing many diseases, the life-expectancy of the latest generation is going to be 5 years less than we currently live!

We’re not here to lecture anyone on diet, nutrition, or “screen-time”. But we do believe that we need to get our children to embrace a more active lifestyle.


That’s why we want to help
If you have a child or grandchild, then let’s get them started playing golf. We’ll make it fun and enjoyable, social, and active. We want them to be healthier for their whole life. We want them to have those 5 years back. It’s time to do something.
