Hello, 

I am an 9 handicap. last few times I hit balls off mat hosel rockets came couldnt stop them. literally got in the grass and hit 7 or 8 balls without a problem. Has any one else had this issue. Ive been working on a few things with my pro. i may hit one or two, he says im coming out and up during the backswing. We get back to work and they go away. really aggrivated any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I suspect your pro might be able to help…

Otherwise, put a tee outside your ball and don't hit it, but hit the ball.

This really helped a lot to make this a great part of my practice.

How far outside? A little in front, back, directly across?

Outside… an inch or so. So that if you miss it, the ball can't possibly be shanked.

i often have the same problem with my wedges off mats.  its unerving.  my issue is that i take a decent size divot and when on mats i tend to unconsciously compensate which causes my short irons to move slightly away from my body and thus a shank.  i think its the impact on the mats which causes this and when i focus i can usually fix but i tend to limit my wedge shots off mats just the same...
