After choosing a suitable club and stroke, a player enters the ball by posing to the side of the ball and moving the club behind the ball. The player then does a backswing, moves the stick, arms and upper body away from the ball, then starts to swing the club back down and hit the ball. A conventional swing is a combination of complex movements, and a slight change in position and good position can also produce completely different kicking effects. The overall goal of each person when performing a full swing is to get the clubhead to move as fast as possible while maintaining the path of movement of both the club and the clubhead.
Accuracy and stability are still more important than distance achieved. A person with a direct drive as far as 220 yards (200 meters) away will still be able to position the ball on the fairway properly. However, someone with a drive up to 280 yards (260 m) away but does not fly straight will find it difficult to get the ball to an advantageous position; the ball line may be “hooked”, “pulled”, “draw”, “fade”, “push” or “slice” from its intended path, causing the ball to fly out of the bound or fall into a rough or obstacle. objects, and the player must take more hits.
