First, focus on the straight left arm in the impact position. Second, the club head should lag behind the hands. The towel impact drill will improve both areas of your swing. By creating the proper downward angle of approach you will now compress the golf ball , hit the ball farther and improve contact.
It doesn’t curve, it just goes straight to the left . The impact conditions that cause a pull are a swing path that goes across the ball (outside-in) and a face angle that is aimed in the same direction as the path. The main causes of a pull are: A ball position that is too far forward in the stance.
In order to hit the ball straight , the club face needs to impact the ball at square every time. Failure to hit the ball with a square club face results in side spin on the ball , which in turns causes you to hit either a fade, a slice or a hook.
A slice shot is caused by a poor grip and setup, an outside-to-in downswing path and an open clubface. An outside-to-in path occurs when the golfer reaches too far on the downside, bringing the club down to the right of the ball (outside), relative to the target line.
A common problem is to whip the club inside on the takeaway and over rotate the hips. When this happens the backswing becomes flat and inside and it’s very easy to hit behind the ball . To avoid this, feel as though the hands, arms, and club move away as one piece during the takeaway.
Pulled Golf Shot Drills If you’re pulling the golf ball you’re coming across it at impact. To fix this motion, you need to promote an in to out swing path. With a modified pool noodle (or weightlifting neck strap) align the device next to the golf ball . As shown in the video, it should align to the right of the target.
Three Steps to Hitting a Fade Open your stance. Aim your feet left of your target, or where the line which you would like the ball to start on. Position the ball slightly forward. Swing along the path of your feet.
