# What is Swing Low Swing High? – Swing Trading Vs Day Trading

I am assuming that you have at least some general knowledge about these terms. I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject, and we are hoping to see more of this type of analysis in the future if this study continues to gain traction. What are your thoughts on this phenomenon?

Swing Low Swing High: (i.e. “swing low”) This refers to the fact that a golfer, on approach to the green, drops his or her approach to the ball off by a few degrees and releases the ball. In the photo below, by the way, this is what can look like as you approach the green:

This same approach from a few feet away looks more like a lower swing low. If this is the case, what kind of result would this produce? Here is a different, closer view of this same shot:

Let’s take a look at this shot, again with the following parameters taken from the ball path at the bottom of the screen on the right:

(i.e. “swing low”)

This first shot comes with more loft (the green is taller, which will cause the club head angle to drop by approximately 13 degrees in this shot). While this shot has a different ball path than the previous two shots, it has the same shot, with the same loft, when you take away the horizontal drop that occurs when you drop the ball off of the ball (it goes up, because of gravity and air resistance). I am not sure about the exact ball path, but by taking away the horizontal drop, the club head angle drops by approximately 6 degrees. With the club head angle, the golfer is no longer creating speed. The difference here is that he or she is not working at the same angle relative to the ball as before, but he or she is working at something much closer to (or closer to the same as) a lower swing low, as a result of the fact that he or she has dropped off of the ball. Since this club head angle drop is approximately 5 degrees, that result produced is a higher swing low, which is in the same ballpark. That is, since this club head angle drop is approximately 5 degrees, we are comparing an increase, rather than a decrease, in performance. This results in the golfer producing greater downward force on the ball when he hits it, which is consistent with the “swirly” appearance of the
