No. Just baseline roughly square.

Assuming you're erring on the open side ?

So, I just found out why I hit so short and high last Thursday. I'm putting way too much spin. Every shot on the driving range today ballooned up and landed between 190-230 mostly 220-230 yards.

The ball would start high then balloon up from there.

I sprayed the face with Mark it and discovered that I was hitting low. Made some adjustments and hit towards the center. Still hit high. The mark it literature says that the teardrop pattern (slight scuff at the top) indicates that I am still hitting down. Even with the ball setup way forward I was hitting down. I flattened my swing such that the club was horizontal at the top. Still ballooning shots.

My shots feel even more solid than before they started ballooning, but I did try slowing my swing down and it did go lower. However the shots were still short.

I'm at a complete loss.

Just make sure that club head is "falling behind you" as you shallow the shaft on the downswing. Check that the club head is on or inside the hands at A6.

 

 

Note: I'm familiar with @Lihu's swing, reason for the specific advice.

Just read the opening post on page 1 and I found it very helpfull to understand ballflight and what is happening in a swing. Might be a bit of topic. But can I apply it also on a 3w hitting of the tee? Should I put the ball a Tiny bit back in my stance or should it be ten same position? Thanks.
