How to Hit a High Ball

Being able to hit a golf shot with a higher than normal trajectory allows you to get over obstacles such as bushes or trees, or hit an approach shot over a bunker to a severely elevated green. The shot is not complicated to execute. Step 1 Take your stance with the ball positioned more forward than normal. Two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange says placing the ball about one ball-width farther forward is ideal. This has the effect of adding loft to the cheap golf clubs, causing the ball to fly higher. Step 2 Take a normal swing, concentrating on staying down and hitting through the shot. Avoid the tendency to make an upward scooping swing to produce more height; it can have the opposite effect and cause less-than-solid contact with the ball. Step 3 Make sure you extend your arms through impact with your wrists firm; don't allow your left wrist to break down or cup inward. The instruction book "Master Strokes" says a golfer should have an image of his arms forming a letter "V" after impact, with the shaft of the club pointing right between his arms. Hitting the ball with a very high trajectory will result in a shot that travels a shorter distance. Don't try to increase the distance by swinging harder, which can throw off the tempo of your swing and cause you not hit the ball squarely. You may end up hitting a low ball that strikes the tree you were trying to hit over. Make a smooth, controlled swing and adjust your shot strategy. Accept that the ball may not make it all the way to the green, for example.The instruction book "Private Lessons" suggests experimenting on the practice range with different clubs and slight adjustments in the ball position in your stance until you can craeate shots with higher flight Ping Rapture V2 Irons. Imagine an obstacle such as a tree in your way as you swing, and see if you can execute shots that fly over the tree consistently. For more details, you can visit
