Golfers usually hit behind the ball because of poor pressure movement and casting. Usually the two go hand and hand and are seen to occur together.
I would recommend that golfers practice small swings focusing on pressing into the lead foot to start the downswing. This will help the upper and lower center move and /or stay forward so that their “low point” is in front of the ball instead of behind . A golfer can also place a towel or sponge under their lead foot so they can feel the “press” into the ground. Check out the video below for more details.
