你清楚自己的擊球距離嗎?

撰文:郭永昌

大部分欠經驗的球手所犯的錯誤,都是在擊球前選錯球桿。想在每次擊球前選對球桿,必須先了解兩大關鍵因素。

首先你要清楚了解球包內每一枝球桿的平均擊球距離,其次是現場可以影響擊球效果的重要因素,包括球場狀態及天氣等等。關鍵在於緊記根據自己的平均擊球距離選桿,而非幻想自己可能會打出完美一擊,所謂完美的擊球效果,落點應該超越旗桿。

如欲確認你球包內每一枝球桿的平均擊球距離,最有效的做法是跟你的專業教練預約,利用儀器進行測試。我們的工作室配備的 Foresight GCQuad 系統,堪稱現時市場上最準確的高爾夫球測試儀器。

 

我的做法是要求你以每支球桿各擊球 10 次,排除最遠和最短的距離後,再計算你的平均距離,為了能令你更充份了解,我這裡以測試 7 號鐵桿為例刊登結果(請見圖片 1 及 2 的顯示數據)。

 

我經常看見很多球手每當面對 150 碼的距離,就毫不猶豫從球包中抽出 7 號鐵桿,完全不會考慮 當時氣溫可能只有攝氏 15 度,而且強風迎面而來,如果再加上果嶺是上坡的話,你需要的可能是鐵木桿而非 7 號鐵。我建議你要因應當時的氣候、風速及方向、球場狀態、果嶺坡度以及球位站位等不同現場因素,學習如何適當增加或減少確實的擊球距離。

 

最後我對高差點球手的建議是:所謂眼前的碼數是介乎兩枝球桿之間是一種謬誤。每枝球桿之間的距離差異,其實往往少於 10 碼,我建立你每次都以八成力量擊球,只有擊球扎實,出來的效果與需要的距離頂多只有好幾碼的差距。

 

改善揮桿需要花大量時間去練習。然而,改善選桿錯誤其實省時得多,而且能夠輕而易舉地減低你的桿數!
