Correcting Fat Golf Shot… tips for solid impact

Here are golf instructions concerning correcting the fat golf shot when the ball is above your feet.

These golf tips come from Jack Moorehouse, author of “How To Break 80 And Shoot Like The Pros”.   

Hitting A Ball Above Your Feet

Three things can happen when you don’t make the right adjustments.

First … since the ball automatically moves right to left, you’ll pull the shot out of bounds.

Second … on shots above your feet … you can shift your upper body forward during the swing and come into the ball at a lower than normal, hitting the ball fat.

Third … you can lose your balance and pop out of you stance, resulting in a weak slice.

To hit a ball above your feet, adjust your stance so you’re aiming right of the flagstick, which compensates for the tendency to pull the ball left.

Center your weight above your arches, not on the balls of your feet, which helps you swing along the slope and stay in balance throughout the shot.

Also, keep your posture constant so you can maintain the same spine angle you set at address through impact.

Lastly, you can also grip down on the club, to compensate for the shorter distance to the ball.

Make these adjustments next time you have this type of lie and you’ll hit the ball solidly.

I hope these golf instructions help you play better golf!
