Safe Landing

Posted on: August 25th, 2010 by Jeff Ritter 2 Comments

The key to great driving is to approach the ball with a “shallow” angle of attack. Most poor drivers of the golf ball, have too steep of an attack angle which is culprit behind pop-ups, slices, toe hits and all of those nasty little scratches on the top of your club! To get an idea of what it means to be steep versus shallow, think of the flight of an airplane. A plane that is crashing into the ground is traveling on too steep of an angle of descent. A plane that is landing safely is approaching the runway on a “shallow” angle, so much so that the plane will fly for a decent period of time level to the ground before touching down smoothly. To avoid a crash landing with your driver, practice making some swings just above the height of your golf ball. This may feel like making a baseball swing at a really low pitch. Once you can consistently just miss the top of the ball, bend your posture over a touch so that the clubhead smacks the back of the ball. The angle of attack for an absolutely perfect tee shot will leave your tee standing tall!
