Chunking Fat Hits

The club hits the ground first and then the ball, causing the ball to fly much shorter than planned.

High Shoulder

You keep hitting the ball fat or you are hitting into the ground before contacting ball.

Chili Dipping

You hit the ball fat or hit the ground instead of the ball when trying to chip the ball up onto the green.

Common Pitching Errors

You are having difficulty pitching and cannot pinpoint the problem.

Fat Pitch

You decelerate your swing during short shots or try to scoop the ball up while pitching, only to find that the ball flies short. Another possible cause of a fat pitch is that you are only shifting your hips and your upper body stays behind the ball; the club will then bottom out too soon for a thin or fat contact.

Prevent Scooping Your Wedges

You scoop the ball with your wedges in attempt to get the ball airborne but just the opposite happens. This causes you to hit the ball thin or fat.

Chipping Yips

You shank, top, or hit the ball thin because you jerk the club or the clubhead is taking an upswing instead of a downward blow.

The Flubbed Pitch

You are flubbing your pitches because you are either slowing down during your downswing or the ball is placed too far forward in your stance.

Duffing the Ball

The clubhead digs into the ground before contact, causing the ball to fly short. If your swing decelerates during your forward swing, it will cause your hands to fall too far behind the clubhead at impact and you will duff the ball.

Improve Your Downswing

The ball skips or hits the ground when teeing off before it rises into the air. Very often, this is because the person favors their irons, where they are used to making more of a downward blow at impact.
