Common Problems With Three Wood Shots From The Golf Fairway (Video)

Now a few of the major issues that golfers suffer from when they're hitting a three wood from the deck. Now often the golfer will struggle with probably the same bad shot they would hit from a normal shot so if you've got a seven iron from the fairway and you had to bit of a slice chances are the three woods going to exacerbate that. If you've got a seven iron from the fairway when you hit the ball fat chances are the three was going to exacerbate that as well but there's a couple of things that we spoke to. A three wood that maybe don't affect you in other parts of your game. The first one might be low shots you feel like you've struck the ball really nicely but the thing never got above head height and if it's on a a wet day chances are that lands too soon and it doesn't get its full distance so the consideration there may be that we look at how much loft is on the club if it's a fifteen degree three wood like a lot are and then you impact the ball with your hands slightly ahead so if we bring this ball around if we hit this ball with the hand slightly in front let's say we've got five six or even ten degrees of shaft lean all of that shaft lean comes off the loft on the club face. So we've got a fifteen degree club with five degrees of shaft lean silly We've got a ten degree club that's like trying to drive off the deck there's no wonder that doesn't get above head height so some times the low shots can be purely because there's not enough loft on the club and there's too much shuffling or the considerations might be hitting the ball fat now if you're not hitting the ball fat with any other iron.

That might come as a surprise to you why is it suddenly fat when I'm using my three wood a lot of this can come down to length of shaft and ball position is the longest or second longest shaft in the bag. It's the longest shot any could be away from the deck and the ball is pretty position the long way forwards so it actually put the ball quite a long way towards that left instep that's going to help us get the ball up in the air but if we then leaning. Back and trying to scoop the ball chances are we're going to hit that ground before the ball hitting the ball fat so we want to make sure we're making a good accurate contact on the ball another issue with this is often the golfers planning the wrong shot you know maybe playing into a par five narrow green fairway bunkers everything in the way and we've certainly pulled out a three wood from two forty think eager to be able to hit a high cut on the green. It's possible you're just trying to hit the wrong shot at the wrong time with some poor planning your expectations are too high another thing connected to that is maybe just run it all too hard. Quite often and people got three what it let's see how far down this par five we can get it for my second shot and we just over swing ourselves too far back off balance trying to really kill it and we get a bad connection as we're trying to hit it too hard to consider if those four issues are issues that are affecting your three wood and see how you can help improve your three which up from the fairway.
