Don't Lift the Balll

The lowest part of the arc of the swing with the ball on the ground should be 2-4 inches past the ball. Hitting behind it is usually a result of the player trying to lift the golf ball to get it airborne. This player will lean back on their trail leg and release the clubhead and shaft too early. Create better lag in the downswing and lean the shaft forward slightly at impact as you pivot your weight onto your target side at finish.
