Free Tips On How to Control Your Club Head Trajectory

Controlling your clubhead trajectory gives you more control, which helps you score lower. Here are some tips on how to improve your club head trajectory.

To begin with, you want to relax your grip to the point where you can feel the weight of the clubhead at the end of the shaft. Gripping the club lightly like this will help you control the club better. Now you would think that the more relaxed your grip, the less control you would have over the club. In reality, tight muscles in your hands, wrists and forearms reduce your control.

Create more resistance on the backswing. You want to have some tension in your hips and legs (especially your right leg). Firming up your right thigh will create more resistance on the backswing and ensure that you don't overswing. Building up the coil on the backswing will keep the club head under control.

Decide what kind of shot you want to hit before you address the ball. For example:

  • If you want to hit the ball high, then you want to finish high in your follow-through.
  • If you want to hit the ball low, finish low
  • If you want to fade the ball (a left-to-right curve) you will hold the clubface open through impact
  • If you want to hit the opposite shape (right-to-left) then you will want to turn the club head over as you make contact.

Focus on making a good turn in your swim and the club head will take care of itself. Rotate around a solid spine angle and a firm leg action. If make sure that the dog is wagging the tail and not the other way around, you will have perfect control of the clubhead.

Focusing on the club head for the first few feet of the swing is a good idea. You have the most control of your clubhead at the beginning of your backswing because the club is moving fairly slowly at that point. One good tip is to brush the grass lightly as you move the club away from the ball. Brushing the grass in this way on your backswing will ensure that you keep the club head low and slow and will get your swing off to a great start.

Implement a few of these tips the next time you are on the driving range or the golf course and you will see an improvement in your club head control.
