Having a penetrating ball flight is one of the most coveted aspects of ball striking. It truly separates the average joe from the seasoned pro and today you are going to learn the secrets to unlocking this powerful ball flight. But first, what is a penetrating ball flight?


When a tour pro strikes the ball, they are doing so with a descending blow. This negative angle of attack allows the golfer to compress the ball solidly on the face. When a golf ball is compressed, it "rebounds" off the face with a significant boost in speed over a shot that is struck "thin" or not fully compressed. The ball literally "leaps" off the face. This is very important as it helps the ball cut through the wind for the first 30 or 40 yards with authority. This is why you hear the ball "hiss" off a clubface when struck ball a good golfer.


The last key to this is launch angle. All tour pros deloft the club at impact, turning their 8 iron into a 6 iron loft, etc. This launches the ball lower than an amateur with the same 8 iron and keeps the ball from ballooning. Combining a properly compressed ball with a delofted clubface will give you that desired "flat" and powerful ball flight and in this video, we are going to show you how to do it.

Study the two screen captures above. First, note that in the swing on the left the shaft is still delofted and stressed after the ball has left the face. This is caused by the club being driven through the turf on a continuing descending arc. This motion of striking down ensures the club is never "flipped" through impact which will alter the loft of the clubface through impact uncontrollably.


In the second photo, I'm hitting a 7 iron which has 35 degrees of loft. However, you can see that just after impact my shaft is still leaned toward the target some 7 degrees (slightly more the moment of impact) and the ball is being launched at 18 degrees. This launch angle is not exact due to the camera angle, but this does give you some idea of just how much lower the ball should launch than the clubs true, static loft. Using the drill in this video will help you achieve these powerful positions at impact and give you a ball flight that all your friends will envy!
