Golf Tip – Thin Shots

March 27, 2016 Posted by Matt

Thin ShotsIf you are hitting thin shots, or ones that strike the middle of the ball, it’s time to make some adjustments to your golf swing.  A thin shot is usually caused by swinging too hard.  Golfers tend to shift their weight to their back foot and then start their arms down too quickly.  The problem is your center never gets back over the ball.  To eliminate thin shots you need to make a slow transition between your backswing and your downswing.  If you slow down the shift between your back foot and your front foot you will be more centered at impact.  This will allow you to hit down and through ball, ultimately eliminating those thin shots.
