10 posts in this topic

Hey guys , this is mostly for my driver and woods, I tend to hit a lower a shot like not a straight line driver but it's not as high as I would like... Any tips?

Might be coming too steeply, like across the ball. I would try to get the club more inside.

I'm by no means an expert, but I seem to remember reading (or maybe watching Golf Channel Academy) that to get more height on your drive, to move the ball forward in your stance. This will get your club on more of an upswing as it makes contact with the ball. If this doesn't work, you might want to try teeing it a bit higher. If you tee the ball sort of low now, you might want to try teeing it higher first, and see if that makes a difference.

1) you could be hitting a really low spin drive, alot of spin will increase height of the drive

2) you are hitting a pull shot (pull fade, pull draw, pull), this shot is lower compared to a push shot

3) you have the wrong golf shaft in the club

4) you have to little loft on the driver for your swing speed and type

Just some options that could cause a low drive

But the thing is it goes straight I swing roughly 90 mph with regular which is my correct shaft it's even 10.5 loft so it has to be something with my swing

Or do you think it goes straight, because i played for years with a pull. I would aim 20 yards right on my drive and just swing very hard and hit pulls all day. But they went straight to my eye because i was aiming right. I didn't know this till about 5 years ago. So you can say, "Oh my ball flight is straight" but under ball flight laws it can be a pull or a push.

Honestly it could be that because I tend to slice with a slight out to in.... Next time ill lay an alignment stick down as I'm hitting

Make sure you are keeping your head behind the ball.  It helps with an ascending blow.  I can not have a positive angle of attack without keeping my head behind the ball.

Hey guys, so basically I figured it out... Or I hope so, I like to have a closed stance promoting an in-out swing however this opens the cub face slightly, but since I roll my hands over at impact I have a nice draw, what I was doing was closing it even more, so I was snap hooking on a bad shot, and with solid contact and timing I hit it low but I figured it out so all things well :)

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
