Video Golf Tip | Cure For Pull Shots: Set-Up

One of the most common causes of that pull shot simply occurs in the set up. People that pull shots tend to set up with the right side too high. That is, the right shoulder is too high and the right hip is too high so that the right hip is too far over the right foot. What you would like to have happen is you would like to set up with your left side higher than your right so that as you make your swing around that angle the club will tend to swing more inside out. So when you get that set up we call that a Reverse K where the left side is higher than the right, the left side looks like it is in a straight line and the right side looks like it is indented. A good exercise to help you get that feeling is to set up next to your golf bag. Just put your foot your knee and your hip next to your golf bag. This makes the left side real long and tall and sets the right side underneath more. As you make your turn around that spine angle your swing will go more inside out and thereby eliminate that pull shot.

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
