The Hammer Golf Swing : Hitting Low Hammer Golf Shots
The Hammer Golf Swing : Hitting Low Hammer Golf Shots


In this segment I’m going to talk about hitting
the ball low. Why is it important to hit the ball low? How many times have you seen golf
scores go up when the wind is blowing hard? Why? The main reason is that people don’t
know how to hit a shot low. They hit a high shot and the wind blows the ball all over
the place. A low shot, the wind affects really very little. Now, hitting a low shot with
the hammer swing works great. Because, a general principle is the further you bring back the
hammer the more difficult it is to hit a nail in straight. For example, a carpenter, if
he brings the hammer back this far, it’s much easier to hit a nail straight into the wall
compared to if he did this. I’m sure you would agree, it’s more difficult to hit a nail straight
into the wall with that swing than with this one. Similarly, if you have a golf club, it
is easier to hit the nail straight with a shorter swing than with a longer swing. So
instead of…let’s say you have 140 yards or whatever you have, and you normally hit
an 8 iron, let’s just say. Instead of doing something with that 8 iron and swinging big
and hard, you could take a 6 iron with less loft and take a shorter swing to hit that
same 140 yards. And with a shorter swing, it’s easier to hit the nail in straight. Hitting
low shots with the hammer swing is a dream. Take one or two more clubs, your normal swing,
your normal ball position, your normal hammer hit, and just do it with a shorter hit. Because
the shorter you swing the easier it is to hit that nail in straight. Low shots with
the hammer swing is a dream.
