PostSubject: Ball too high   Mon Dec 01, 2014 6:07 pm

hi to all the old birds ,

i discovered that the flight of my ball seem flying too high compare to others at the range thus losing on distance. it the same for my driver & irons, also the same when i using tee or the ball is on the turf.

any tips on how to correct this?

your hands may be behind the club head at the point of impact - adding loft

casting is one of the big culprits of flipping... without looking at your swing, it's hard to tell what you may be doing. do you have a video of your swing?

casting, reverse pivot, flipping, could be any one of those things among others...

Hi there what are your yardages? If you post them it may be easier to see if you're really losing distance or not.

Good point, there are a lot of guys who de-loft their shots and it may make your shots look higher.

provided you have an average swing speed, your shots must be very high... losing a lot of distance. 
my iron shots are not the longest averaging 145m for the 7i and 250m for the driver... I also have higher trajectory compared to others.

Probably a combination of things, might be that the shafts your using are not fit to your game? Might be a good idea to go for a club fitting sometime?

Sorry to hijack this thread, I have same flipping issue. Also tendency to tiptoe at impact and after impact both feet turned out. Have attached pics below. Distance wise not that bad, 5i ard 150m but highly inconsistent.
