DST.jpgThe greatest ball strikers in history have one thing in common, they are able to reach the optimal impact position consistently and maintain control of the club face after the ball has been struck. DST Golf took this knowledge and created the DST Compressor, a new warm-up club with a scientifically curved shaft club that replicates the shape of a normal shaft under maximum load. This gives golfers a set-up position that closely replicates the optimal impact position, which helps builds muscle memory of an address position and optimal movement through impact. Mastering these mechanics improves accuracy and consistency, ultimately lowering scores. The Compressor is used by more than 40 PGA Tour players to prepare on the range each week.
