One of the easiest ways to flight
00:05
your golf ball around the green is to
00:07
think about what your right thumb
00:08
is doing through impact.
00:09
If I take my setup position for pitching,
00:12
and I come through impact, and I think about
00:14
my right thumb finishing on the left side
00:16
of the shaft, and then you can see that
00:17
my face is turned over.
00:19
And, typically, that's gonna hit a
00:20
low flighted pitch shot that releases.
00:23
But if I come through impact, this time,
00:24
and think about my right thumb staying
00:25
on the right side of the shaft, then,
00:27
all of a sudden, that face is on the right side
00:30
and my shot's gonna be a lot higher
00:31
and I'm gonna get a lot more spin out of it.
