Having the ability to manoeuvre your golf ball into play by deliberately changing it’s natural flight can be quite an advantage to have over your competitors. However I'm sure it becomes very frustrating when you play yourself out of position by playing shots that have an un-wanted or an un-controllable 'Ball Flight' that you did not intend to play!

Understanding different 'Ball Flights' and their common 'Swing Causes' is a vital part of understanding, controlling and improving your 'Golf Swing'. Within this 'Fault Finder' I offer a clear description and explanation of your chosen 'Flight' and also provide a list of Common Swing Faults that may be causing this un-wanted shot.

A brief description of a Low Ball Flight.

A 'Low Ball Flight' has a very shallow flight trajectory when leaving the Club at Impact and flies lower than a normally flighted shot. This type of Ball Flight also has good penetrating qualities when flying through the air.

To create this type of Ball Flight the Golf Swing will be travelling on a Steeper Swing Plane and the Swing Path will be narrowing causing the Loft Angle of the Clubface to reduce and de-loft at impact, thus causing a Lower Ball Flight.

A Low Ball Flight is an ideal shot to play when playing in a strong wind. It's also an ideal flight to use if you need to play under obstructions, such as trees, bushes etc.. that are positioned between you and your 'Target'.

With a Low Ball Flight the ball lands on a shallow pitching angle and has quite an aggresive first bounce forward and continues to bounce forward there after before coming to rest.

NOTE - You should consider this type of Ball Flight if you require your ball to bounce short of a green and roll up on to the putting surface.

    Key Swing Terms

     Different Swing Path's in relation to the Target Line.

  • A Swing Path;

  • The term 'Swing Path' refers to the direction and path your Hand & Arm Swing and Clubhead are travelling on throughout the Swing.

    The direction of your Swing is then measured against your Target Line when impacting the Ball to ascertain whether it's square to this line, traveling from an Outside to Inside Path or an Inside to Outside Path.



  • A Swing Plane;

  • The term 'Swing Plane' refers primarily to the angle your Hand & Arm Swing and Club are traveling on when moving around your body. This Plane is measured when looking from a view down your Target Line by picturing a line that runs from the ball up through your right shoulder. The angle of this line is known as a 'Swing Plane' that should be in a neutral position which is neither too steep nor too shallow when your Swing rotaties around your Spine Angle.

  • An Important Point.

  • Your Address & Posture Position creates a foundation of 'Angles and Lines' for your 'Core Body Movements' and 'Hand & Arm Swing' to rotate round. Then as your 'Core Movements' rotate into your Backswing, Downswing & Follow-Through Swing space will be created around your body for your 'Hand & Arm Swing' (Golf Swing) to move freely into, thus creating a free flowing and balanced Golf Swing.

    With this motion your golf ball will fly on a straight line to Target if your Address & Posture is squarely aligned to your 'Target Line' and positioned correctly to suit the type of shot you intend to play.
