Pop Ups Are Steep

Pop-Ups are when the golf ball flies off the crown of the driver instead of the face. It happens when a golfer makes contact with the ball over an inch higher than the center of the club. The most common cause of this shot is getting steep. The most common cause of getting steep and hitting the pop-up is the forward lunge. Good drivers of the golf ball have a minimum of a 4-inch difference between the location of the upper and lower body. If your upper body is too much on top of your lower body (like you would have with an iron) then you run the risk of hitting pop-ups.
