Golf Swing Analysis Martin Kaymer

Golf Swing Analysis Martin Kaymer

Great win for Martin Kaymer and you can chalk one up for the good guys.  A nice well mannered young man that is a good athlete.  Martin Kaymer’s driving average right now is 293.6, tied for 52nd.  He’s 38th in accuracy and funny enough I used David Toms as an example of being more in sync and sure enough David Toms is number one in accuracy.  Good guess Lopez!

I’m a putting stat freak and in three putt avoidance Martin Kaymer is 79th.  Just a bit above half way up the pack.  The stat I really like to look at is six footers.  Well Martin Kaymer is tied for 126!  Not good but let’s see if we can look at that same stat for this tournament.  Oh well, I couldn’t find that stat but I did find all of Martin Kaymer’s stats for the year here http://www.pgatour.com/content/pgatour/players/player.27408.html/statistics

One stat that sticks out with the bank teller is Martin Kaymer’s total earnings to date….over $2,250,000 and he’s 11th on the money list and it’s only May!  Ben Hogan just turned over in his grave.  Sam Snead started shaking and Lee Trevino has decided to start mowing more lawns.

What Golf Ball Should I Use?

What golf ball should I use?

Pick one golf ball and stick to it!  That’s my advice.  Why?  Because the golf balls today have so many different configurations, you need to find one golf ball you like and stick with it throughout the season.  Get ready to change to another golf ball the following year because the golf ball companies are constantly making changes.

I would stay away from any golf ball that claims to go straight.  Straight is just a code word for shallow dimple or reduced spin.  You might get more roll on a hard surface but you’ll loose considerable distance on a wet one.  Plus, you’ll have a tough time stopping the golf ball on the greens.

Find a golf ball you like the feel of when putting and chipping.  It’s the short game that counts!  Learn how your golf ball comes off the club face on your putter.  You’ll start leaving those long 40 foot putts closer and lower your score.

Below is a report that appeared in the PGA magazine last month about golf balls.  The PGA magazine goes exclusively to PGA pros to inform them on the latest traits in the industry.  This report will give you an insider view of what the industry is thinking you’re thinking.
