Controlling the Bottom of Your Swing Arc

From Michael Breed On November 02, 2021
You've just hit a great drive. You have a short iron in your hands and a perfect fairway lie. You know this is a great opportunity to hit it close and make birdie, but instead, you hit six inches behind... the ball and flub the shot.

If this has ever happened to you, Titleist staff member Michael Breed has a solution that will make these deflating shots a thing of the past. The key is learning how to control the bottom of your swing arc and ensure that it's consistently right under or just past the golf ball. As Michael explains in this video, the key to this consistency is minimizing sway while rotating the upper body fully through the shot. Give Michael's tip a try and see how it can give you a few more birdie opportunities each round.
