Why is my club not connecting with the top of the ball?



Why is my club not connecting with the top of the ball?

A player’s body tends to rise in the classic golf shot as they strike through the shot. That means that if your club is too short or is not the right length, you’re likely going to miss the sweet spot on the ball and connect only with the top of the golf ball.

Are You too focused on your golf swing or mechanics?

There’s a fine line between focusing too much on one or the other. When a Golfer is too focused on his/her mechanics … the smoothness of your swing suffers. When you’re too focused on a smooth golf swing – your swing mechanics suffer. So the question becomes: which is more important for you to see more consistency?

Can you swing smooth without the golf ball in front of You?

Just because you can swing smooth without the golf ball in front of you – doesn’t mean that your club would’ve hit that “imaginary” ball close to the center of the club, with a straight club face, on a good swing path, and at the proper angle required.

Do shorter golf clubs make you hit harder?

Shorter clubs will force you to hunch over the shot, compress your body into the ball, and encourage you to try to swing harder through the golf ball, which is the exact opposite of what you should be doing. When developing a good technique, you need to let the club do the work and relax over the ball.
