Connect With Your Game - Angle of Attack

By: Golf Shake | Wed 04 Apr 2018

Swinging into and down on the ball is something that is encouraged in most golfers iron swings, however, when it comes to the driver, staying behind the ball and swinging in an upwards angle of attack can promote great consistency and distance off the tee. 

Many golfers will find themselves having a tendency to hit down on the driver, this will dramatically increase their spin rate which lowers distance, whilst also effecting their consistency off the tee. Andy Carter believes with a few simple tricks he can correct this behaviour and encourage a more positive angle of attack into the ball, increasing distance and performance on the course. 

For many golfers feel they are hitting 'out-to-in' on the golf ball creating a fade shot, which will create a lot of spin and effect their maximised distance, however, by using Andy Carter's drill of swinging low and up into the ball, your angle of attack will become more positive and powerful, and the results of more distance and consistency will increase along with it. 

Andy Carter is a Golf Coach and Teaching Professional at the European Tour Performance Institue at the Jumeriah Golf Estates in Dubai.  Andy also provides daily tuition and interactive content on his Youtube channel Improve My Golf.
