STRIKING A GOLF BALL AND TREE-FALLING SIMILARITIES

Striking down on the ball is easier said then done to the average golfer. The tendency is to chop at the ball. Gouge the ground. Feel like a fool. Not necessary. The MONGOOSE GOLF SWING video tutorial shows you how to execute a top-down swing with your hands separated exactly as the tree-fallers in the picture above.

Benefits. The average swing has lost most of its power by the time the club head gets to the ball. Why? The golfer tries to sweep the ball off the ground or tee. You turn a 6 iron into an 8 iron sweeping the ball. Sweeping a ball off the ground or tee makes it hard to control direction. Driver becomes 5 wood. 

The tree-faller levers his upper body toward the tree while at the same time bringing the axehead into the tree at full force. How? Hand-action. The top hand (both with the axeman and the swordsman) applies force AT IMPACT. They start the axe toward the tree relatively slowly - almost nonchalantly - but the axehead is picks up speed as it moves through space because they slide the top hand down to meet up with the lower hand at impact. THWACK! That sound is made by a deliberate upper hand hand action at impact. 

With the MONGOOSE GOLF SWING video tutorial - you learn to apply similar power with a golf club. Right handers power through with their right hand pushing as their left hand pulls back slightly. An instant lever is created with this simply concept. “Give me a lever big enough and I’ll move the earth” said Archimedes. 

If you’re interested in buying the tutorial - the instructions costs means etc are in the far right column.
