Brittany Lang - Getting On Top of the Ball

Brittany Lang helps us understand getting on top of the ball


Explain your swing because you've said it, I've put you in the same category as Lexi Thompson, where you're real natural.


You slot the club, and I'm sure you know all about it, you've been doing it your whole life. Can you explain how your swing looks and feels to you?

I don't know that I really have a great grasp on that. I mean, I've had a lot of people tell me I swing like Jim Furyk.

You definitely don't swing like Jim Furyk.

And I'm like, really? I mean, I would gladly have his resume, but--

You definitely don't swing like Jim Furyk.

I don't know, I mean, I've just been blessed with a natural mood that works.

But do you feel like-- do you have some conscious thoughts, like are you a turner? Do you try to hip, do you turn the shoulders? Do you have conscious?

No, so I will tell you this, set up is really important for me and I play my best golf when I'm not thinking about that. I do sometimes think about getting on top of the golf ball as a cut player.

What does that mean?

So, on top of the ball there's like a pole, on top of the golf ball. This is not on top of the golf ball.

That's sort of behind and underneath.

Underneath, behind. That's a draw.

Perfect for a draw.

Yeah, and I'm a cup player, so when I start getting a left shot as a cut player I say, OK Brittney, let's hit some on top, almost stay still, walk through,

I see.

On top on top. But then when I play, I want to be an athlete, I want to see it and play. I don't want to be thinking about on top of the golf ball.
