Golf Swing, Trajectory Control
When the ball is played that far back in the stance the swing is abruptly stopped just after impact by the collision with the earth. Since the shaft is leaning so far forward at impact the complete release would dig a deep trench.
This releasing action is only possible with a swing that does not roll the forearms through the hitting area with cheap golf clubs. Rolling the fore arms does not advance the club head past the left arm, it simply rotates the club face open and closed.
As the loft of the club reduces (the longer irons) the amount that you can move the ball back also reduces, this is to say that you cannot move a 1 iron back very far since it already does not have much loft and reducing it much further is rarely if ever needed. However it is possible with this swing to turn a lob wedge into a 1 iron by placing the ball way back to the right of the right foot.
