What Causes High Golf Shots?

By Chuck Cook

For those of you who have a tendency to hit the ball too high it is real important that you understand what makes the ball go too high.

The Cause of High Shots

What creates that extra height in your shot is that the handle of the club is too far behind the ball. If I set the handle in the appropriate position I get the exact amount of loft that I need. As I move the handle further back then I keep adding loft, making the ball go too high. So what we have to do to help you get your desired trajectory is to start moving the handle farther forward at impact, thereby de-lofting the club making the ball go in that lower trajectory you are looking for. We have a number of drills and exercises that will help you do exactly that.
