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!

Look what I found this morning on my way out the door! On Mother’s Day no less. Maybe this is a sign that my daughter will be a perfect angel 👼🏻 for the rest of the year. Haha #fourleafclover
❤️ Thank you @titleist for having us! ❤️ Manchester Lane is for ball testing, player club fitting and ball fitting. The level of detail to everything they do from the ground conditions to ball testing protocols is outstanding.
🙏 Thank you for the comments from all the previous posts (below the photos, I don’t look at DMs). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have really good ideas about what you’re looking for and what you need. If you have an issue, I may already have a video posted for it so check out my others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I don’t have the answer for you posted, leave it below 😀 remember, no question is too simple or obvious. If you have it, for sure someone else has it too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That being said, I can also get into more specific issues for the advanced player. Because those tips are not as useful for everyone, I don’t do them as often but I am happy to make one here and there. Thank you, everyone! 😘

@Jstruebs Totally.
I never should have downloaded this app...
This is soooooo sweet!
@mfinneygolf Just about. But with consequences that you can’t really create all too easily on the range.
Oh I’ll find you 🔎 (thank you😊)
