Golf Tip – Fat Shots

September 20, 2015 Posted by Matt

fat shotsFat shots are when the club strikes the ground behind the ball, and can be one of the most frustrating shots in golf.  There are several causes of fat shots, but a common one occurs because you stand too far from the ball.  If you hit fat shots, try to see if you are coming up on your toes as you come into the ball.  If you are, you are moving your body in a way that will cause you to stick the club into the ground.  Try standing a little more upright and make an up-and-down move with your arms and hands so that you come down on the back of the ball at a sharp angle instead of coming in low and flat to the ground.
