Reverse spin applied by drawing the face of the racket down across the ball at impact. Also called "underspin."
The spin on a ball caused by the club face; stops the ball rolling forward when it lands and, in extreme cases, makes it move backwards.
The reverse or backward rotation of the ball. Also called bottom spin.
a type of spin where, if struck with a normal racket position, the ball would not make it over the net
A stroke produces backspin when rotation on the ball is reversed
A reverse spin applied to the ball to stop it from bouncing and to make it end short.
A reverse spin placed on a ball to make it stop quickly on the putting surface.
A ball that has been hit in such a way as to keep it spinning backward during flight; also known as a "slice.
To hit the bottom of the ball making it spin backwards while moving forwards. See also Dropshot and Slice.
The backward rotation of a golf ball in flight around a horizontal axis as caused by the club hitting the ball. The more loft on a club, the greater the backspin. Certain finishes on a club face (e.g., milling, brass-blasting) can also increase backspin.
spin (usually of a moving ball) that retards or reverses the forward motion
Backward rotation of a golf ball in air. Also used to describe wedge shots that roll backwards after hitting the green.
Backspin is what naturally happens to the ball when struck successfully, especially with irons. The lower lofted irons have less backspin. In contrast, high loft clubs and wedges have the most spin and thus the ball spins back towards the player once it hits the ground. Backspin is also coveted by novices as a sign of advanced shot-making.
Reverse spin imparted by striking the ball with a downward movement of the racket.
The clockwise rotation of the ball on its horizontal axis influenced by the loft of the clubface, the angle of approach and the clubhead velocity. (A ball struck below its center with any club that has loft, even a putter, will have backspin in the airborne portion of its flight. The greater the backspin, the steeper the ball will fly and more quickly it will stop. Opposite is top-spin.
Allows an approach shot to stop quickly and possibly roll backward on green.
Reverse spin on a ball, causing it to bounce backwards or stop in the shortest possible time.
A reverse spin placed on the ball to make it stop short on the green
a type of spin which makes the ball spin anti-clockwise as it leaves the bat
Reverse spin on the golf ball that prevents it from bouncing forward after landing.
hitting the underside of the ball.
A shot played by striking the cue ball below centre, the spin causing ball's trajectory to bend against its initial direction of motion.
The spin on the ball caused by the loft of the club face.
A ball rotating in the direction opposite to its travel.
A type of spin used mostly on defensive shots. When you chop the ball, you produce backspin. The bottom of the ball will move away from you.
Backward rotation of the golf ball that causes it to climb upwards due to differences in air pressure around the ball. Backspin also assists the golf ball maintain a straighter ball flight.
This is the reverse spin applied to a ball during the shot that makes it roll back upon landing.
Backward spin around the ball's horizontal axis that will make it stop or even roll back upon landing.
A spin applied to a ball (usually by a wedge) which causes it to role backwards once it hits the turf.
Backward rotation on the ball, caused by drawing the racket strings down during the stroke, that results in a low bounce. On some surfaces, the ball may even bounce back toward the net. Also known as underspin. See also chip; chop.
This refers to spinning a record backwards for a short and quick spurt. It is used as a special sound effect and can be used to give the peak of a build some more energy.
Reverse spin applied to the ball and prevents it from bouncing forward after landing; same as Bite.
When the ball hits the green and spins back toward the player. Galleries, or spectators, love backspins.
In racquet sports, backspin (or underspin), is a shot such that the ball rotates backwards (as though rolling back towards the player) after it is hit. The trajectory of the shot involves an upward force that lifts the ball (see Magnus effect). A backspin shot is useful for defensive shots because a backspin shot takes longer to travel to the opponent, giving the defender more time to get back into position.
