Optimal up-swing angle is 5%, this means your best advantage is to hit the ball slightly on your up-swing. Picture a salad bowl and the wide base, most amateurs hit on the down swing or the flat part of the swing shape. You need to hit on the up-swing. When you are descending, you are actually ‘steep’ and approaching the ball from the outside.
Picture yourself swinging to right field, inside-out. Move ball position up, slightly ‘hang back’ through impact and swing out.
Have fun this weekend!
