So I've been experimenting with my ball position in terms of getting a draw according to the new ball flight laws. So I've been swinging with a slightly open face(to the club path) and what I'm feeling is it's hindering the feeling of a solid, "completed" swing where the bottom hand drives over the top in a full extension....you know what I mean. So to get that really drivey feeling of the bottom hand smashing through the ball I have to put my ball position back further in my stance. That way I get the inside out swing path, the slightly open face......and I still get to feel that "power move" of the rolling forearm.
OK, all well and good but the rearward ball placement just ****s me up, big time. Overbalancing, topping, pivoting around my rear leg.
I think I'm going to have to go back to a central ball position and play with a slight fade or straight ball flight.
No great loss really. I reckon if I get stuck behind a tree or something I can always go to the "old " ball flight laws and play a more Nick Faldo type hook. Y-know with the closed clubface and the closed stance.
Has anybody else had the problems of ball placement while trying to play a new age draw?
