Loosen your grip

Unless you have a great lie forget trying to hit a 3 fairway wood. Use a heavenwood or a 7 fairway wood. The most important thing to work on to correct the problem is to make absolutely sure you are not gripping the club too tightly and that your shoulders are relaxed and not scrunched as so many amateurs are. These two important things will allow gravity to assist the lowering of the clug during the forward motion and get you properly to the bottom of your swing circle.
