After this lecture you will be able to identify and label your problem ball flight. There are many ball flights available to us. There are also many terms used to describe similar shots. These descriptions are all relative. It's important to note that the definition of the shot what it's called is not the most important aspect. Basically we have a straight shot, one that curves right and one that curves left. In this model they are labelled in terms of start and finish positions only to be more precise. The descriptions are relative. For example what is a high shot? What is high to you will be low to your fellow golfer.
After this lecture you will know how the relationship between 2 of the laws affect ball flight characteristics. We look closely at what produces curve.
After this lecture you will be able to explain what factors are causing your troublesome shot. You will also be able to set up a practice session to receive instant feedback.
