Hitting Up On The Ball
HITTING UP ON THE BALL…NO,NO,NO
Hitting up on the ball produces hacking and almost all topped shots! Hitting up is caused by the clubhead passing the hands into Impact and is a clubface motion instead of a clubhead motion. Most players do this because they THINK they must help the ball into the air. In a proper golf stroke the clubhead is moving downward at Impact, NOT upward!
Look at the picture below and see the effects of hitting upward.
The ball MAY bounce off the turf but ultimately produces topspin.
