Gene Parente here from Golf Labs with an important lesson on attack angle and how a small adjustment in our ball position can lead to longer AND straighter drives.

So what is the angle of attack?

Well, we don’t hit a golf ball on a level or linear plane. Our swing path’s angle goes from negative on the downswing to neutral to positive on the upswing. Our research shows professional golfers always have a positive angle of attack with the driver and hit up on the ball.

Conversely, most amateurs’ data reflects a negative angle of attack, which is typically caused by outside to in swing path and coming down on the ball.

Attack Angle

So how do we change our angle of attack? Good news, it’s simple! Just move the ball forward in your stance. Start with one inch forward and experiment up to two inches forward. The results should be a straighter, higher, and longer ball flight.

Who doesn’t want that!
