Watch Missing Shots off the Toe Video


Golfers learning a one plane swing, or a more rotational rather than upright golf swing can begin finding themselves hitting shots off the toe as a common miss. If you find yourself doing this, take heart, it probably means you're doing a key component of the swing correctly. Hitting shots off the toe, if all other things in the swing are proper, is due to the rotation of the body through the shot and the fact that the shoulders are more open at impact than they were at address. This effectively increases the distance between the left shoulder and the ball, and thus, the butt of the club is further away from the ball than it was at address.


You will find that all golfers have a slightly different way of dealing with this issue depending on how they have figured out what works best for them. For some golfers, they will increase their spine angle on the way down to effectively close the distance and get the club back on the ball in the center of the club face, an example being Ben Hogan. Others will simply set up with the ball more towards the heel of the club, an example being Vijay Singh. Vijay tends to stand up slightly through impact with his right hip getting closer to the ball and his spine angle decreasing somewhat, so it makes more sense for him to set with the ball off the heel of the club. Ben Hogan actually did a little of both, setting up with the ball off the heel of the club and increasing his spine angle. Clubs back in Hogan's day were a little different than today, and the sweet spot was a little closer to the heel, so this also contributed to his setup. But if you find yourself making good swings and just missing toward the toe, try setting up with the ball more towards the heel of the club and see if that doesn't get you more solid contact.


To learn more about this, watch the video above.

Note the picture of Vijay Singh at address here from the main website here hitting a three wood with the ball setup well into the heel of the club.
