Causes of High Shots

Other videos in the series Fix Your High Shot with 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. 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.

Thin Shots: One-Plane Swing A common fault in the one plane swing are thin shots because the club path is pitched to the right, fix this by delivering the club to impact with your arms swinging to the left and pulling your shoulders.
