### Easy low golf shots

1. 1. ==== ====How to improve your golf shotshttp://www.websreviews.com/uncovers/thegolfnut==== ====What Causes A Golf Shot To Curve?If you can learn what causes a golf ball to behave in a particular manner then you will be betterable to understand the cause of an wayward shot and better able to produce a particular shotshape when you need it. There are two key factors which determine the shape of a golf shot:1) The direction the club head (CH) is traveling at impact.2) The direction the club face (CF) is looking at impact.Just for a moment dont think about anything but the club and the ball. Forget the target. This willmake it much easier to understand ball flight characteristics. Well bring the target into the picturein just a minute.Initial Line of Flight - This is always determined by the swing path the CH is on at the time ofimpact with the ballIf the club face happens to be looking in the same direction that the CH is moving at impact, thenthe ball will go straight along the path of the CH.If the club face is looking to the left of the path the CH is on then the ball will curve left, but ONLYAFTER it first goes straight along the path of the CH. This is called a draw or hook depending onhow severely the club face is looking to the left of the CH path.Conversely, if the club face is looking to the right of the path the CH is on, then the ball will curveto the right after it first goes straight along the path the CH is on. This is called a slice or fade.Before we go any further in this discussion on shaping golf shots, we want to make sure youunderstand the relationships just discussed. Then we will make practical application of theinformation.The ball is compressed against the club face and initially sent in the direction the CH is moving,not the direction the club face is looking.If the club face was looking either left or right of the CH path then as the ball leaves the face of theclub it will have two types of spin. It will have back spin and side spin. The backspin will be thedominant spin at first and the ball will go straight along the path the CH was moving on.As the backspin starts to diminish then the side spin will take over and the ball will curve left orright depending upon the club face alignment at the time of impact.
