Causes of Low Shots

Other videos in the series Fix Your Low Shot with Chuck Cook:

For those of you who have a tendency to hit the ball too low, it is really important for you to know what causes your ball to go too low. What controls the trajectory of any shot is know as the effective loft of the club. Even though I have just a 6-iron here, I can control the height of this 6-iron by changing how far forward the handle is. If I put the handle farther forward this de-lofts the club, as I bring the handle back this increases the loft of the club. For those of you who hit the ball too low, you are getting the handle of the club too far in front of the clubhead, thereby creating too low of a ballflight. What we have done is put together a number of exercises that are going to help you bring the handle back into the position it should be at impact to get that trajectory up in the air.
