Tips for controlling the trajectory of your ball

But when you have trees or wind or any other items that demand you hit a higher or lower shot than normal, there are a number of small adjustments you can make that will help Here are some tips to help you control your trajectory.

When you need it high, give it all your thigh. Swing fast and increase the spin and therefore the trajectory.

When you swing down the ball goes up. Make your swing steeper to make the ball go up faster. Make a divot.

Make your swing flatter to make it go lower. Practice baseball swings.

Place the ball position forward to increase the trajectory

In the set up tilt the shaft angle forward to lower the trajectory and decrease the loft of the clubface and consciously keep the hands ahead of the club head during the swing. Keep the butt of the club pointing forward of your zipper

To keep the trajectory low make sure your body leads the swing and finishes forward.
