Okay. What we’re going to do is we’re going to cover about the topic of hitting down, hitting down and through the ball and how it affects the actual height of the golf shot. Now, in essence, what we need to do here is we want to focus on actually striking and striking down at the back of that ball and as we hit down and through, so we’re hitting the ball and then a divot, okay? Ball, divot, as we hit down and through, the clubface will be squeezing the ball between the ground on the face and it will be rolling back up the face and that’s what governs how high the ball goes up.

Now, most golfers don’t get themselves in this position. Most golfers are over and almost doing that, pull themselves up and you can see they’ve hit the top of the ball. Top of the ball is self-explanatory. You’ve seen what’s happened there. We’ve hit the top of the ball and it has rolled along the ground, but also all our golfers have this sort of fear of if I hit the ground it’s going to hurt. I can assure you it isn’t unless you’re going to hit off concrete. Off grass is lots actually care and suppleness, so you must focus, focus on hitting that club right at the base of the ball.

If you’re at a driving range, put a line of chalk just underneath the base of the ball and focus on hitting down and through, so if put that club there, right behind the ball and I’m just confusing on hitting down, lovely sound, down and through, the clubface has now sent that ball on its trajectory, on its path, lots of control, very, very little effort. So, this is all about, please try and get out there and focus on hitting down and through the ball, not as golfers do trying to hit the ball, but by trying to help the ball up in the air you’re actually hindering what you can actually do, so remember, hit down and through for the ball to go up.
