Thinning a shot often happens due to a golfer hanging back with their body through impact and not rotating correctly. Golfers tend to hang back on their back foot with their spine tilting back through impact. This swing characteristic generally leads to lack of power and inconsistent ball striking.
A golfers lack of mobility in both the hips and the thorax (chest) is a major factor in golfers hanging back causing thinned shots. Another reason golfers thin shots is as a result of trying to help the ball up into the air instead of allowing the clubs loft to achieve this.
A great practice drill to achieve a good impact position is to work with an impact bag or a tyre. Preset an impact position squaring up the clubface on the impact bag with the hands ahead of the clubhead, your hips should be open to the target with the majority of the weight on the left foot.
