2 Technique Tricks to Hit a Ball Below Your Feet
With the ball below my feet the ball will tend to curve following the slope, so it will go from left to right, so I need to adjust my aim accordingly. I need to aim a little bit to the left of my target to allow the ball to bleed into the target area.
Aim Left of the Target
The reason that is going to happen is that when I take my posture I am a little bit more bent over, and now the arms are going to swing up a little bit higher, making the ball fade a little bit more from a right-hand player's perspective. So you need to adjust your aim.
Ball Below Lie: Keeping Your Balance
Balance is critical on this shot, so when I take my set up I want to take an extra golf club and swing a little bit easier, keeping myself in balance through the whole shot. If I lost my balance my weight will tend to go towards my toes and I will end up pulling the ball. That is why the ball may not always curve from left to right, but you can anticipate it.
That is why I take an extra club, swing a little bit easier and allow the ball to bleed into the target area. Let me show you with a shot. The ball is below my feet, I have good balance. If you apply these principles I know it will make these shots easier for you on the golf course.
