Why Should I Hit Down On Short Game Shots (Video)

Now there are also different shorts that you should hit down on. So iron shaft for example wedge shaft and then the drive you really want to be hitting up to try and get that maximum amount of the launch and spin conditions. Now we show shafts -- with chip shafts. This way becomes highly different because if the line is good, you’re going to have lots of different options. Now generally speaking, if you have a chip and run shaft so you just want to hitch in the ball on the green and angle releasing down towards your target. You do want to be striking down on the ball. What you will give is an initial lower starting trajectory or give a little bit of grab on the grim. And because you’re going to be lowering the loft by getting the hands ahead, they’ll really be spinning as much as if you were increasing loft. So how that would look with a normal shaft is getting yourself set up.

Getting the weight on the left side ball position pretty much in the middle, getting a handle lining so it’s pretty much just opposite the left thigh, moving it back in one piece the arms and the shoulders together and then try and return to the same impact position with the hands ahead. Now that’s going o be that downward strike on the ball when you’re chipping and you’ll see that little bit of a divot just after the ball. Now if you wanted to increase, the amount of spin that you have and you want to increase the amount of check that you actually on the ball. One way of actually being able to do that is to quite hit down as much and to actually use a little bit more of a sweeping motion. The hands will still be just slightly ahead of the ball and the angle of attack will be slightly down but more getting towards the level. Now that will produce different spin characteristic and the initial starts interjectory will actually be much higher than the other show which went lower and spun that little bit later. Now in general like I said if you’re going to be here in chip and run shot you do want to be striking down on the ball. But if you want to see different types of flies and different types of spin, don’t be worried about altering around the angle of attack just to see the different results that you can get.
