What does “hitting down on the ball” mean? Does one think of bringing the butt of the club down towards the ball and to the left of the body (i.e., “low and left”)?

I like your mantra for hitting down on the ball: “low and left.” I usually tell my students “down and left.” Either one works great. However, remember at the end of the day you want educated hands and wrists, that naturally do all of this, with no conscious though. However, this is exactly how you train them.
