How to hit the high ball

My standard ball flight is about as high as anyone’s on tour – from driver right down to my wedges. That gives me a huge advantage in carrying hazards, flying it over tress and holding greens. It certainly helped me win the Players Championship last year. In the opening round when I shot 9-under-par 63, I hit 15 greens in regulation. You can’t do that at TPC Sawgrass with a low ball flight.
