    But thereís lots of golfers that donít (probably the vast majority of them). Lots of them are very good golfers that hit the ball a long ways. It can actually be helpful to have a negative AOA if you are a low spin player.
    You can arguably say that each swing with every club is different. But, basic mechanical movements remain constant. Obtaining a positive AoA with your driver while having a descending strike with an iron can be achieved by swinging similarly. Ball placement and subtle setup changes can get you there.

Did that whenever he really wanted to pound one, which was often. Great use of the ground to maximize vertical leverage and to create a faster release and more clubhead speed.

    He definitely didnít keep his weight on his right foot at all times. It was actually a double shift. Middle, right, left, right.
