Simple Reminder About Hitting Solidly Around the Green

The angle of attack is the direction that the club is heading before contact.

In golf instruction, we often use this measurement to look at how solidly you may be hitting the ball. It effects your launch angle, your spin rate, your direction and more.

But in this video, I'm only mentioning the idea of "hitting down" on the ball to keep it simple. If we were to split hairs, you aren't actually hitting down on the ball, but the club head is indeed traveling in a downward direction. But because you will be TURNING your chest and or torso through to the target, the club head will rise up and not crash into the dirt.

The reality is, even though your club must make contact with the turf on which it is sitting, because your weight will be on your front side and you're turning through while posting up, the club will bottom out gently and then travel up.

You know you're doing something wrong if your club is digging trenches into the dirt from 30 yards away...

So check out this little reminder and hit the ball more solidly!

You’re on the range. You’ve seen the alignment rods. You wonder how to use them...... With the @theopen coming up at @royalportrushgolfclub it will be interesting to see the players aim. With hardly any trees or other visual markers to use, they will have to find intermediate targets on the fairway. Many players do this already but it becomes a must for those who don’t. Here I’m using @bubbawhips 💕 for practice. I think having two is helpful because the first one you use to set your target line (where you want the ball to end up) and the second one set parallel to that on the ground. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 💙 Apparel: @jlindebergsport ⠀⠀⠀ 🖤 Hardware: @titleist @scottycameron @vokeywedges 💚 Kicks: @gfore
Are you, or do you know someone who is thinking about starting golf? . Whether it’s you or someone you love, encourage it! This game is incredible at bringing unlikely people together whether it’s on the golf course or in conversation. There is no way I would have met the great Christine Lagarde @Christinelagarde (former head of the IMF and next president of the European Central Bank, Forbes Top 100 most influential women in the world, #3) and Jane Harman (former congresswoman from CA, and now head of the Wilson Center). These two incredibly bright and inspirational women, were so much fun to teach. What an honor and privilege to have had that time. . Happy Bastille Day! 🇫🇷 @christinelagarde @jlindebergofficial @jlindebergsport
So this was a fun round.
