Nevertheless hitting the golf ball clean can be difficult and you can end up hitting a fat thin or a topped shot. This difficulty is far more pronounced with double digit handicapped golf players together with beginner golf players. Main Reasons Which Usually Lead To Fat Or Thin Hits: Within the golf driver swing clean hits depend mainly on the stance golf ball positioning inside the tee box the backswing and the downswing. When you have a tendency to bend over too much during the backswing and then you do not return to the normal position at impact this can result in a thin shot. When you are positioned too close to the ball then your angle of attack becomes too sharp and may result in a fat shot.
Also if you ever move too much laterally or parallel to the target line during the driver swing youll end up striking a fat shot. In a fat shot the club head typically strikes the ground first after which it makes contact with the golf ball resulting in a lot less energy being transferred to the golf ball and resulting in a much shorter shot. In addition if you have a tendency to squeeze your body or straighten your back while youre within your downswing it is going to lead to a thin hit or even a topped hit. If sometimes your hips move forward and backward or sideways then this may also result in a thin hit.
Hitting the sweet spot will result in longer shots with the same swing speed. Another way to increase distance is to simply swing faster. If you can keep your contact quality the same the ball will go further. These improvements are usually attained by improving your swing or by diligent practice. Another factor that we are learning increases driver distance is the angle of attack at which we swing the club into the ball. Studies using the advanced launch monitor Trackman Pro have shown that with a swing speed of 90 mph (average for male amateur players) a change in angle of attack from minus five degrees to plus 5 degrees will increase driver shots by 20 yards or more. Obviously if you hit down on your driver you would want to change this if you can. You can improve your golf swing by increasing your "golf fitness". You can do drills that strengthen the right muscles allowing you to swing faster.
