Video Golf Tip | Causes of Low Shots

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.

Release the Wrists for More Power Timing is everything in the golf swing, practice the proper wrist release to increase your power
Wrist Hinge for Power A two plane swing requires you to actively cock your wrists. With a one plane swing the weight of the club tends to hinge your wrists back naturally and making the swing less complicated.
Slicing and Hooking Intentionally Have the clubface aiming where you want the ball to end up and take your stance aiming at where you want the ball to start off, and then swing on your stance line
