Tip From the Archives
You are digging into the ground before hitting the ball and the ball barely moves.
Check your ball placement because you might be doffing the ball because it is too far forward in your stance.
Pay attention to where you begin and finish making contact with the grass during your practice swing. Use this as gauge to help you determine where the bottom of your swing is so you know where to place the ball. Other things you could look for that may cause you to duff the ball is if your grip is too tight, hands are setting behind the ball at address, incomplete weight shift, or forcing a downswing from the top.
