Golf Tip – Snipe Shot

snipe shotA snipe shot is a drive that flies low, left and doesn’t go very far.  It can be an embarrassing and frustrating shot.  The main cause is usually your right hand being too active in your golf swing.  If you are a right handed golfer, your right hand should be on the club to go along for the ride and provide stability.  Your left hand should be doing all the work.  To prevent a snipe shot, move your right hand a little more to the left on top of the grip.  At the same time, move the index finger of your right hand about a half an inch away from your other fingers under the shaft.
