Short Game Golf Tips - The Role of the Shaft Angle in the Short Game
The shaft angle has a very important bearing on the quality and execution of your short game shots. Many amateurs have too much shaft lean which delofts the club and makes it dig into the ground; this results in ball flights that are lower than they should be and lots of mis-hits. It is especially a problem in bunkers as the golfer does not get the right angle of approach into the ball with the correct loft.
Address - shaft vertical
Impact (OK) - slightly “loaded” i.e. forward - decreases loft and bounce, adds dig of leading edge
Impact (not OK) - set back “negative” - increases loft and bounce, decreases dig of leading edge
