Around the Academy:

Introduction

A good golf swing looks entirely effortless.

But it isn't.

It is as violent as any boxer's knock out punch.

The professionals learn how to control and maintain a technique which allows them to put 100% of their energy into connecting with the ball.

You don't have to be at 100% throughout the swing, just at impact.
