Video Golf Tip | Causes of Pull Shots

For those of you are interested in fixing your pull shots - that is, a shot that goes to left of the target but goes straight - it is very important to understand what causes that shot. What causes that shot is the fact that your clubface is square to the direction you are swinging but the path that your club is swinging is to the left of the target. If you have this problem you probably have been told that your swing comes over the top. What that means is that from the top of the backswing your club moves outside the target line and approaches the ball from outside the target line to inside the target line or to the left. If the clubface is square to that path then the ball will be pulled. So what we have are numerous corrections for you to get the path of your swing changed so that the path of your swing will come more from the inside of the target line to down the line, thereby eliminating that pull shot.

Shoulder Alignment At Address Many slicers set up with their right shoulder too high, prior to bending over to get in to your stance try tilting your right shoulder slightly down then take your stance, this will allow your body to work more around your right side and eliminate that steep downswing
