5. FAT SHOTS
Hitting it fat? Like a thin shot, you’ve got to stop trying to lift the ball into the air! Allow the club’s loft to handle the lifting, and concentrate on getting your weight off your right side on the downswing. To do this, initiate your downswing with a slight bump of the hips toward the target. By doing this, you’ll center your body’s rotation more over the golf ball, helping to avoid hitting the turf before the golf ball. If you’re hanging back, you’ll be hitting it fat! And by the way, let’s say you’re making a good swing and still hitting it fat. Sometimes a simple adjustment in ball position (move it back) will make all the difference. Get that ball just in front of the lowest point on your swing arc.
