Sean Foley on Changing Your Angle of Attack (Video)

GC is posting some bits of their Revolution Golf teaching for free, probably as samples of what you'll get if you pay for the service. In them I found this short video from Sean Foley that might help improve your driving.



I know Sean sometimes gets very technical in his explanations, but this isn't difficult to understand.

Your angle of attack is simply whether you're hitting down or up on the ball at impact. And what Sean is saying is that you unconsciously change your angle of attack just by teeing the ball higher or lower. Furthermore, you'll do it regardless of whether you change your ball position or not, because your eyes react to the height of the ball.
  • If you tee the ball low, you'll automatically try to hit down on the ball, even if you move the ball forward.
  • If you tee the ball high, you'll automatically try to hit up on the ball, even if you move the ball backward.
Obviously, you'd like to move the ball a bit forward when you tee it high, and you'd like to move the ball a bit backward when you tee it low. That way, your ball position and angle of attack are working together to get the results you want.

But what you need to take away from this video is that you can change your angle of attack by as much as ten degrees just by changing how high or low you tee the ball -- and that will happen without any effort on your part to change the angle of attack.

This is a case of simple knowledge being more important than technique. Knowing that what you see will change what you do can eliminate a whole lot of frustration caused by working against your natural tendencies.
