In many instances, the best golf shots are those that fly low.
Low golf shots are particularly the best golf shots when playing into extreme winds.
A low ball flight also may be preferred in order to flight your ball under tree limbs or below some other such obstruction.
There are several golf swing instructions to flight your ball low to the surface.
One most recognized golf method of producing a low ball flight is the “Stinger” made famous by Tiger Woods. It consists of playing the ball off your right foot instead of in the middle of or forward in your stance.
Another popular technique to hit a low golf shot is to stand nearer than usual to your ball. Considering all other conditions and circumstances as being the same, when you stand nearer to your ball in your setup routine, you steepen your swing plane which will tend to produce a lower ball flight.
The same phenomenon occurs when you narrow your stance more than usual. This too will steepen your swing plane and tend to produce a lower ball flight.
The longer the club, the less the club face loft. Consequently, one way to produce a lower trajectory of the ball is use a less lofted club.
In addition, the slower the club head speed at impact, the lower the ball will tend to fly.
Thus, a combination of a less lofted club with a slower swing speed may be one of the better ways to hit a low golf shot.
The way to learn the most preferred way to hit low golf shots is to try the different techniques noted above. Then use the ones that suit the situation at hand. Some may be the solution for certain conditions while others may be more beneficial when confronted by different challenges.
Each of these techniques to produce a low ball flight work best when you have a locked-in square alignment and an on line swing path of your club face at the completion of your setup routine.
If so, not only will your ball fly lower than normal, it also will fly straighter and, perhaps be one of your best golf shots ever, assuming you then keep a steady head and execute a non-manipulative golf swing.
