Description

Modern driver head design is an exact science with powerful CAD software being used by every manufacturer these days. With these powerful software applications, the center of gravity (COG) can be moved up and down, forward and back to dramatically alter the performance of a golf club. This video focuses on the COG because it impacts where the ball should be struck on the face for maximum performance.


Video Practice Points
  • Center of gravity (COG) imparts maximum energy transfer, minimum twisting, and less spin than below COG
  • Find and mark COG (not the center of the face) by balancing the driver head on a point
  • Use a loft/lie gauge to determine loft at the COG (generally greater than loft stamped on the club)
  • The point of max COR is the true center of the face - this point imparts greater spin than the COG
  • The higher your swing speed, the more detrimental spin is to your overall distance
  • Reduced spin at the COG more than compensates for the slight loss of ball speed from hitting above the point of max COR

Testimonials

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

-Dr. Jeffrey Broker, Assoc. Prof. in Biomechanics at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Former Senior Biomechanist for U.S. Olympics Committee

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
