Video Golf Tip | What Makes The Ball Curve
By Tim Cusick

As a golfer it is important for you to understand why the ball curves the way it does. When you have a club that has more loft on it you hit a little bit more down and into the ground and that creates backswing. The ball tends to fly straighter when you have more lofted club in your hand. When you have a straighter faced club in your hands, such as a driver, you have more potential for side spin. Side spin makes the ball curve more to the right or more to the left. What confuses a golfer is that he stands on the first tee with his driver and he slices the ball into the right rough and he steps up with his 9-iron and pulls the ball left of the green. He thinks that he is hitting the ball everywhere when in fact it is just loft, or lack of loft, that made the ball curve or not curve. So remember, when your ball is curving pay attention to the loft of the club that you have and that will lead you to a reason why that golf ball might be curving or not curving.

Slice Cure: Forearms To promote clubface rotation make sure your left hand grip is turned back enough and then take half swing concentrating on the rotation of your forearms
Three-Foot Putting Drill Put a tee in the back of the cup and hit it squarely with every putt
Wrist Extensor Stretch Getting full mobility in your wrist extensor is important because it allows your wrists to move properly in the backswing so you do not have an open face at the top of your backswing
