clear for LAUNCH

Golf Australia - - IN MY OPINION -

Rahm’s ac­tion is pur­pose built to send the ball into the strato­sphere from the tee.

From his wide stance, to keep­ing his head be­hind the ball dur­ing the down­swing to al­low an up­ward an­gle of at­tack of around five de­grees, all the way to his fin­ish po­si­tion that em­bod­ies the phrase “turn to the fin­ish” bet­ter than any­one else on Tour.

Jon’s wide stance pro­vides the sta­bil­ity to al­low him to send the ball a long way. It lets him turn his lower body dur­ing the down­swing with­out any hin­drance and use his big mus­cles to pro­duce im­pres­sive power. Al­though there is some move­ment in head po­si­tion, as there is with all good play­ers, Rahm’s abil­ity to keep his head be­hind the ball helps him launch the golf ball high o the tee and carry it a long way. Keep­ing some of his weight on his right leg un­til af­ter im­pact also means he can fully re­lease the club with­out fear of the ball go­ing left.

He fol­lows this re­lease by wrap­ping the shaft around his back like Greg Nor­man did in his prime.

All three power moves are eas­ily copied and cer­tain to raise your ball flight with the driver as well in­crease carry dis­tance.
