Covering the Ball

What do you mean by covering your bed with a comforter or blanket?

What do we mean by placing an umbrella over a backyard table to screen out the Sun? One can think of the function of a ‘Table-Cloth’ as well?

Golf has some tricky and individual terms. What does it mean to ‘Cover The Golf Ball’?

What is ‘Fat and Thin’ when striking a mid iron off the fairways deck? An idea? Very generally, ‘Thin’ means Topped. ‘Fat’ can mean Bottomed or ‘divot-ing’ behind the ball.

‘Cover’ is a term that is bantered about in the golf instruction environment. ‘Covering’ a golf ball is a key ingredient when you want to hit the golf ball ‘Flush’ or with ‘Purity’.

In simple English, ‘Covering The Ball’ means getting your ‘Pivot Centered Body Mass’ or weight in the specific ‘Mechanical Advantaged Position At, During or Through Impact’.

With an iron, one generally wants a descending or negative ‘Angle Of Attack’ (AOA). A sensible way to do that is, as mentioned, by getting your weight over the low point of the swing through the Impact & Separation Zone’. (see ‘Bottom Of Swing Arc or BOSA’) This means forward of our ‘Set Up Neutral Sternal Center’. To facilitate this ‘Center Of Mass’ one must rotate and shift weight over the Target Foot, meaning in front of the ball. (see ‘Trap The Ball’)

Where do we take our mid to long iron ‘Divots’? In Front Of The Ball’ To accomplish this feat, we must effectively shift our ‘Weight Forward’ over and, indeed, in front of the golf ball.

During this process, our ‘Sternal Centers or Chest’, like that Table-Cloth, cover the ball!

A good point to ponder, is that hanging back on our Brace Foot (Weight Aft) keeps us from ‘Covering The Ball’. (see ‘Thinning and Ascending’)
