Champ the champion


PGA Tour’s longest player wins with Srixon Z-STAR

Cameron Champ has won his second PGA tour trophy within two years of switching to the Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball.

  On his way to victory at this year’s Safeway Open, Champ topped the Driving Distance and Scrambling rankings. An achievement no doubt helped by playing a ball that’s long off the tee and soft around the green.

Consistently better

 
 
 
What part of your body controls your swing?  Too many golfers struggle with consistency because their hands (and arms) are too involved in their golf swing.
 
 
 A swing controlled by the hands and arms depends too much on the finer, smaller muscles. Swinging on plane becomes difficult. Consistency of ball striking is impossible. And it's much more difficult to create power.

You need to let the large muscles control the swing to create consistency and power.
 


 
 Test it out on the range
On the range, feel what part of your body starts your backswing and what part starts your downswing. Controlling the first movement of both the backswing and downswing with the correct part of your body can be a big pay-off for most of you.
