Having the ability to manoeuvre your golf ball into play by deliberately changing it’s natural flight can be quite an advantage to have over your competitors. However I'm sure it becomes very frustrating when you play yourself out of position by playing shots that have an un-wanted or an un-controllable 'Ball Flight' that you did not intend to play!

Understanding different 'Ball Flights' and their common 'Swing Causes' is a vital part of understanding, controlling and improving your 'Golf Swing'. Within this 'Fault Finder' I offer a clear description and explanation of your chosen 'Flight' and also provide a list of Common Swing Faults that may be causing this un-wanted shot.

A brief description of a High Ball Flight.

A High Ball Flight has a very steep trajectory angle when leaving the Club at impact and it flies a lot higher than a normally flighted shot. With this type of Ball Flight the ball has poor penetrating qualities when travelling through the air that greatly reduced the distance the ball travels.

When the ball pitches it lands very softly and comes to rest very quickly. This type of ball flight is created by extra loft being added to the Clubhead when it impacts the ball.

A High Ball Flight is an ideal flight to use if you are playing to targets over hazards or over tall obstructions that may be positioned between your ball and your 'Target / Landing Area'.

You could also use this type of Ball Flight if you feel the need to play to a flag that is positioned in a tight spot such as over a Bunker or a corner of a green and you feel the need to attack this tight flag location and stop the ball quickly.

NOTE - This type of shot is a high risk shot option!

    Key Swing Terms

     Different Swing Path's in relation to the Target Line.

  • A Swing Path;

  • The term 'Swing Path' refers to the direction and path your Hand & Arm Swing and Clubhead are travelling on throughout the Swing.

    The direction of your Swing is then measured against your Target Line when impacting the Ball to ascertain whether it's square to this line, traveling from an Outside to Inside Path or an Inside to Outside Path.



  • A Swing Plane;

  • The term 'Swing Plane' refers primarily to the angle your Hand & Arm Swing and Club are traveling on when moving around your body. This Plane is measured when looking from a view down your Target Line by picturing a line that runs from the ball up through your right shoulder. The angle of this line is known as a 'Swing Plane' that should be in a neutral position which is neither too steep nor too shallow when your Swing rotaties around your Spine Angle.

  • An Important Point.

  • Your Address & Posture Position creates a foundation of 'Angles and Lines' for your 'Core Body Movements' and 'Hand & Arm Swing' to rotate round. Then as your 'Core Movements' rotate into your Backswing, Downswing & Follow-Through Swing space will be created around your body for your 'Hand & Arm Swing' (Golf Swing) to move freely into, thus creating a free flowing and balanced Golf Swing.

    With this motion your golf ball will fly on a straight line to Target if your Address & Posture is squarely aligned to your 'Target Line' and positioned correctly to suit the type of shot you intend to play.
