Video Golf Tip | Adding Height To Your Shots
By Tim Cusick

I am going to talk to you about getting the ball higher up in the air. There are certain characteristics that allow the golf ball to fly higher. One is the loft of the club so obviously when you have a more lofted club you have a better chance of hitting the golf ball higher in the air. The same goes for clubhead speed. When you have more clubhead speed you have a better chance to put more spin on the golf ball which launches the golf ball up in the air. The third thing is the length of the golf swing. If you swing the club farther back as I mentioned in a previous video clip, if you swing the club farther back and finish higher through you have a better opportunity to launch the ball higher in the air. The fourth thing I want to talk to you about is the angle of your swing. If the angle of your golf swing is more up and to the right you have a better chance of hitting the golf ball higher in the air. Conversely, if the angle of your swing is down and to the left you will hit the ball lower. The last opportunity is how your body reacts. If I swing back and my body is leaning toward the golf ball I am going to hit more down on top of it. If I can get turned behind the golf ball and stay there I have a better chance of launching the golf ball up in the air. So if you are looking to hit the ball higher remember those five steps I talked about, one of those is going to help you launch the ball up in the air higher which makes you hit the ball farther.
