千萬不要模仿職業球手的揮桿!

The Square Set Up

The Hook Set Up

美巡賽上最出色的擊球者,大部分在開球時都會打 Fade,對右打者而言即是從左向右飛的球道。即使打偏了,頂多是失去了點距離令球落在右邊長草,不算是大失誤。

 

職業球手開球的惡夢是想打 Draw 但結果直飛左邊樹林甚至超越球場界線,因為 Draw 的球道令球在落地後滾得更遠。

 

但對於年長球手來說,開球多一碼就是一碼,爭取更遠的距離是重點,因此很多人會不斷購買新球桿。然而以我的打球經驗,很多 年長的業餘球手都沒有透過調整揮桿來讓自己打得更遠。

 

年長球手如欲增加開球距離,最簡單的方法就是打 Draw 甚至 Hook。你們打的球場難度都不如職業賽場,設計會比較容許落點犯錯。要打 Draw 甚至 Hook 首先要調整準備動作,如圖一所示,這是我要打直球的準備動作:雙腳、臀部和肩膀都與目標線平衡(球道正中央),握桿採自然方式,桿面對正目標。

 

圖二則示範打 Draw 的準則動作: 雙腳、臀部和肩膀的目標線為球道右邊的長草位置,而我的握桿呈強勢。請留意,我的桿面向著球道右邊邊緣而非球道中央,否則結果有可能打至太左的方向。故此,我的揮桿路徑會指向右邊長草,但我的桿面則在揮桿時關閉以製造 Hook 球道的旋轉。球被擊中後會先向右飛,落在球道上後會不停地滾動。嘗試以上一整套調整吧,你的一號木會飛得和滾得更遠,令你在攻果嶺時面對的距離會比以前更短。
