Make sure you are aimed properly, and check your grip. Also slow down your swing you may just have got too quick and turned your hands over too quickly therefore closing the face prior to impact.

How to stop hooking a golf ball?

Try to slow down when you turn your hands over through impact, this will prevent hooking. Also make sure you are lined up straight with your shoulders parallel to it.

Do you use golf nets to cover your golf clubs when not in use?

Golf nets are not used to cover your golf clubs when not in use. Golf nets are used to stop the golf ball after you hit it. It is like a background stop for the golf ball. There are golf nets for indoor and outdoor use.

How do you stop a Hook in your swing in golf?

If you are hooking the golf ball, you are most likely either getting too quick and turning your hands over just before impact therefore closing the clubface too early and causing the hook, or you may be swinging the club round your body.

How do you hit a stop shot in golf?

In order to get a shot to "sit" or "stop" on the green, you must hit down on the ball. The more that you hit down on the back of the ball, the more spin you will create and thus, the ball will stop.

Which is bigger a golf ball or LA?

well it depends......or you can get off this website and stop wasting electricity!!!!!!

What did the soccer ball do?

it helps people get hurt and helps people win gamesAnswerThe development of modern 'rubber bladder' inflatable soccer ball first introduced in the 19th centaury allowed soccer to become a more technical game compared to the pigs bladder inflated leather balls previously use from medieval times.

If a golf ball and a bowling ball collide and the bowling ball keeps moving How did the golf ball's speed compare with the bowling ball's speed?

The force of the bowling ball colliding with the golf ball causes the golf ball to be redirected in an elastic collision. How fast either travels depends on the friction of the surface and the angle of contact with the bowling ball.Comparative Masses and EnergyIn the collision between a golf ball and a bowling ball, the fact that the bowling ball continues to move (although possibly changed in direction) is a function of the comparative masses of the two. The bowling ball is much more massive, so at normal velocities its kinetic energy exceeds the kinetic energy of the golf ball. In order to "stop" the bowling ball, the golf ball would have to make a perfectly aimed collision, and have a much higher velocity. Quantitatively, the velocity of the golf ball would have to be the inverse ratio of the ratio of the masses of the two balls, so that the kinetic energy (mass times velocity) is equal and in the opposite direction.Example : Golf ball at 45 g, ten pound bowling ball at 4500 g -- the golf ball would have to move at 100 times the velocity of the bowling ball to counteract its kinetic energy. If the bowling ball rolls at 2 m/sec, the golf ball would have to travel at more than 200 m/sec (720 kph or 447 mph), about 3 times a ball's normal velocity off the face of a golf club.

Why do you need spin on a golf ball in golf?

All clubs put backspin on the ball (unless you totally duff it). As the ball moves though the air with backspin lift is created. This is called the Magnus effect, it is similar to Bernoulli affect. The spinning creates a pressure differential and thus lift. As to whether or not a ball releases, checks, or spins back upon landing is dependent upon several variables: Spin rate upon landing, angle of decent, angle of the surface, ball velocity, hardness of the ground, and the coefficient of friction between the ball and the landing surface. ANSWER: Back spin on a golf ball causes the golf ball to spin backwards as it travels away from the person who hit the ball. Hitting a golf ball with a back spin will allow the golf ball to travel a great distance with a high arc. Setting a golf ball in motion with a back spin also will help to bring the ball to a stop when it hits the ground.

Which Golf iron do you use for hitting the ball high?

As in club? A 7 iron up. But as in type, an oversized iron with a low centre of gravity, this will help get the ball in the air, and therefore get the ball to stop on the green quicker.

How do you deal with a neighbor that won't stop hitting golf ball onto your property?

leave the golf balls where they are, and call your local law enforcement by dialing their non-emergency number, unless you're in danger.

Why does a golf ball roll far?

There are several attributes of a golf ball that make it fly farther than a tennis ball. A golf ball is smaller than a tennis ball, so it has less surface area, which means it experiences less drag (air resistance) as it hurtles through the air. Furthermore, the tennis ball's surface is fuzzy, which increases its air resistance, whereas a golf ball's jacket is hard and dimpled, which improves its aerodynamic properties, increasing its distance when struck. Many different dimple patterns and designs have been experimented with to increase a golf ball's "length." A golf ball is more rigid and elastic than a tennis ball. It resists deformation much more than a tennis ball does, and when deformed, it returns to its original shape more quickly. This means that more kinetic energy -- of the club in the case of the golf ball and the racket for a tennis ball -- is transferred to the ball to propel it and is not wasted on deforming it. Incidentally, experiments have proved that the golf ball is the fastest moving object in all of sports (not counting the shooting sports, of course). ADDITION: The ball in JAI ALIA is the fastest ball in sports.

When should you replace a bowling ball?

You are only allowed to change your golf ball before you have commenced on a given hole, the exception being if you lose a golf ball. You should clearly state to all playing partners that you have changed your ball and what brand and number it is.
