The stance is excessively broad. If your stance is substantially broader than your feet, it is common for your hips to shift excessively from side to side, and your hip strives to be above each foot as a result. The fact that your hips move too much in either direction can frequently result in the club striking the ground before the ball. This is especially true if you do not recenter yourself by the exact same amount as you move your hips.
- There are a variety of reasons why the ball may have hit the ground before the ball. There are several of these: 1) Hanging back or falling back with your weight onto your rear side as a result of a collision. 2) Making the club available too soon. 3) Swinging from the inside out too far. Noting that I am unable to diagnose your personal hitting behind the ball without witnessing your swing in action.
What causes you to hit the ground before the golf ball?
When a player strikes the ground before striking the ball, it is usually because their club is approaching the ball from an excessively shallow stance. As a result, the club will continue to attack the ball from a shallow angle of approach, resulting in the ball being struck during the upward portion of the golf swing arc.
Why am I hitting the ground first with my irons?
As opposed to maintaining their upper body position over the ball (where the sternum is directly above the ball at impact), they lean back through the contact period. This causes the sternum to move away from the target and the lowest point in the swing arc to travel back as well, resulting in the player striking the ground before striking the ball in the first place.
Why can’t I hit a golf ball off the ground?
As opposed to maintaining their upper body position above the ball (where the sternum is immediately over the ball at impact), they lean back throughout the contact period. This causes the sternum to move away from the target and the lowest point in the swing arc to shift back as well – resulting in the player striking the ground before striking the ball in the first instance.
What is it called when you hit the ground in golf?
Chunk In a swing that results in the clubhead striking the ground before the ball, the clubhead takes up a significant portion of the ground in the form of a divot. A “fat” shot is often referred to as “chili-dipping.”
Why do I thin my irons?
To put it simply, a thin or fat shot is caused by having your swing center position too far behind the ball when you hit the ball. As a result of this inaccuracy, your club will bottom out too far behind the ball, causing you to either hit the ground first (a fat shot) or strike the top of the ball (a high shot) (a thin shot).
