I dont think so. Contact is great on simulator. I feel like I have no problem when everything is aligned for me. My biggest issue is with alignment I think.
Ill spray the clubhead next time. Maybe Im just hitting at the very top of the club. I purposefully teed the ball lower today. Didnt help
Would be nice if it was just a tee height issue to worry about!
I have nothing to offer for your issue BUT I notice I can never get the tee on mat/simulator to be the same height as when I am on the course, and that makes a difference for me. Sometimes the issue is not the swing but something very minor in the setup.
Is it possible that you are teeing the ball too low and hitting the ground on the simulator. Artificial turf is very forgiving on heavy shots.
Essentially popup shots mean you are hitting the ball very high up on the club face. Whether that is because the tee is too high, you are hitting the ground or because of your swing is hard to determine.
Help! I know it is hard to diagnose without a swing video, but here is my issue.
1. On the simulator, I can hit driver 250 yards or so and keep the ball in play consistently.
2. On the actual course, I cant even make contact with the driver. Today I was hitting these little 5 yard dinker pop-ups. I also noticed I was leaving a divot in front of the tee.
What in the heck am I doing wrong! I dont think I am coming over the top. On the range I visualize hitting the ball to right field and completing my swing and its fine. It is just maddening. Ill practice on simulator or range and not have an issue. The second I get on course I literally cant hit the ball. Any thoughts?
