Ball flight help

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.

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 :)

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
