Again, as you would with any shot, you have to swing your fairway woods with a confident mind. Be confident that the ball will rise on its own—there's no need to try to lift it.And remember to keep the body rotating through the shot. There's no need to try to muscle with your arms. Instead, as you can see in my sequence, the downswing is a continuous rotation and shift (simultaneously) toward my left side and the club swings around my body. Think of your fairway wood as you would a wedge and swing in balance, with a nice tempo and let the club do all the work. You'll start seeing better hits in no time.
