Why do I have a low ball flight?
If your head moves forward during your downswing you’ll hit down on the ball too much resulting in a lower than optimal ball flight. So many golfers I come across hit the ball too low. Some of those golfers even try to hit the ball low.
Why are my irons flying so low?
One reason amateurs tend to hit irons too low is that they narrow their swing radius, taking the club back by letting the lead arm (left arm for right-handers) bend too much. It doesn’t have to be locked, but it should maintain a fairly straight appearance all the way to the top.
Why are my tee shots so low?
Tee shots that are too low can actually be caused by cutting your backswing short as well. If you don’t finish your backswing, you won’t be able to get positioned correctly behind the ball – meaning you are more likely to end up leaning left at impact and again fighting with a downward angle of attack.
Why do I hit the golf ball low and left?
Place more weight on your right foot. Hitting the ball too low can be caused by shifting your weight to your left side. By consciously planting your right foot and keeping your weight on it, you will prevent shifting your weight to the right.
Does strong grip cause low ball flight?
A strong grip also has the effect of reducing a club’s loft. In general terms, this means golfers with a strong grip will hit the ball lower and further than someone with a weaker grip because of the lack of club loft at impact.
Why does my golf ball not go high?
The most common adjustment to having the ball too far back in the stance is to hang back on the right side too long on the downswing and flip the hands. The result would be a high, weak shot. Sometimes golfers will attempt to hit down on the ball by moving the entire body towards the ball on the downswing.
Does increasing loft close the face?
When you lower the loft of a golf club, you are also going to close the angle of the clubface. If you increase the loft on a club, you will open the face angle on the club. This applies when you are adjusting loft on the driver as well as irons or hybrids.
Why does a draw go further?
Higher spin loft means more spin and a less efficient transfer of speed-producing energy to the ball. Higher loft and less ball speed produces less distance. And more spin means the ball will stop more quickly after it lands. The result: a draw will generally travel further than a fade.
Why can’t I hit my 5-iron?
Some golfers make the mistake of playing the five iron with a ball position that is right in the middle of their stance. This will make it very difficult to even get the ball up off the ground. A proper ball position with a five iron is closer to your left foot than it is to the middle of your stance.
How far can the average golfer hit a 6 iron?
The average golfer hits their 6 iron 155 yards, but the average range varies between 138 and 169 yards. Your distance is determined by how fast you swing the club and how well you compress the ball.
