I've seen different methods online for trying to get a high ball flight.  I hit a high (for me) cut shot okay, but I'm interested in how different golfers hit a high straight shot or a high draw with their irons.  When I need to play a low shot I just put the ball back in my stance and make sure to keep my hands in front of the ball.  Does just playing the ball forward encourage a higher than normal ball flight?  What other mechanical keys do people use?

Hump the giraffe.  I always forget about that.  Thanks for the reminder.

when i hit a high draw i feel like my wrists and grip pressure are very light, i swing the club smoothly from the inside and really focus on swinging it out to right field. that coupled with the ball up in my stance about a ball or two, lets me hit a higher shot when need be. the high draw is a great shot to have, hope this helps you figure it out!

Club head speed and pure.  That is how you hit it high.  If you don't have it, I don't see how it is possible to hit irons (partlcularly long and mid) high (and far).

    • That’s a good article. Finau is very obviously a tremendous golfer. His scoring average is consistently great and he has had a great career. Unfortunately “steady” wins less tournaments than “streaky” in golf. Obviously the higher the base level the less streaky a golfer needs to be to win. He also seems like a real nice guy.  Ricky Fowler is another who has had a long spell of great golf but with very few victories.
    • Since February 12th, I've shot 79, 79, 84, 87, 79, 78, 75, 89, and yesterday's round of 82. Yesterdays round of 82, which consisted of a 44, followed by a 38 was crazy. We went to an away course, not my normal home course, and the greens were like glass. I just couldn't get the speed down. I had 4 double bogeys, all due to putting. I had three 4 putt greens. The game came around when I gotr so frustrated that I just looked at the hole while putting. And it worked. Last 6 holes went par, par, double, par, birdie, birdie. I wish I would have changed the putting style sooner.  
    • It was +3 gross. I think if we had played much further back, it would’ve taken up too much time.
    • That's a very nice swing. Only thing I see is your right knee getting too close to the left knee coming to impact. You would have more shaft lean if you kept the distance between the knees wider. 
    • Really? I didn’t know that. Thanks Iacas!  I will retake the videos hitting a ball shortly and repost it.
