Built For Speed The philosophy of today's address position is quite different from the previous era. In the past, kicking in the right knee to prevent a sway and forward pressing the hands to eliminate a flip were used to prevent inconsistencies occurring during the swing. Today's more athletic starting position is designed to encourage maximum freedom of movement and increase clubhead speed. There are no built-in regulators to slow things down. Instead, these hindrances are replaced with a feeling of readiness in all parts of the body that requires the participation of everything from the feet to the head. If you're interested in maximum clubhead speed, this approach is a must.
