Trying to lift or help the ball into the air could be the most common problem golfers have.
A couple of good drills to alleviate this;
1. Pick a spot, (broken tee, old divot, discolored grass), 3-4 feet in front of the ball in line with your target. Try to swing your club over this spot & swing through the ball, not at the ball. This will let the club do the work.
2. Angle a tee into the ground towards the target. Imagine your club is a hammer, how would you “drive” the tee, (stake), into the ground. This should help you swing through the ball, because if you swing at it, there will be no force behind it.
