Mike Malaska uses the Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor to work on his launch angle. This device is essential when it comes to playing golf.
Mike is using a pitching wedge to work on his launch angle. Most Tour Players keep their pitching wedges' launch angle below 30 degrees. Some are as low as 25 degrees.
Mike sets up to hit his wedge, and the launch monitor records 36.6 degrees. That is a little too high.
Mike adjusts his ball position and makes another shot with his wedge. This time it is down to 33.1 degrees. It still could come down to below 30 degrees.
If the launch angle differs from what you want, you must adjust something. You can move the ball farther back in your stance or add more weight on your left foot. Another thing you can do is make your swing a little steeper.
These are some ways to get the launch angle down, and it's about playing around with these different ideas.
Again, work with the ball position, approach angle, and how you use your hands and lean the club shaft.
Work with these ideas until you get the number you want. Ideally, you want to be at 30 degrees or less.
