Video Golf Tip | How Your Body Effects Shot Curvature
By Tim Cusick

How your body reacts in the golf swing often times determines the shot that you hit. For instance if you make a swing and your body hangs back and does not turn through, that would tend to make you hook the golf ball. Conversely, if your body turns through to much and your right shoulder is out in front of your left you will have a tendency to miss to the right. Ideally you would like you arms and the club to go through and your body go through with the same amount so that your upper body is right out over your left foot. Remember, if your body hangs back the ball has a tendency to hook, if your body turns through too much your ball has a tendency to slice. Let your arms and hands match up to your body and you will hit straighter and more consistent shots.

How To Tee A Ball Up Don’t assume anything when teaching children; even something as simple as the correct way to tee up a ball should be taught
Putting Eye Line And Aim When you set up to putt pay attention to what your head and eyes do when they check the target, players who line their putts up right or left will have their head and eyes move towards their left shoulder or up to the sky rather than directly down the target line
Wedge Putting Drill Practice putting with your wedge forces you to hit the blade of the wedge directly on the equator of the ball, which is exactly where you want to hit the ball with your putter too
