Video Golf Tip | Cure For Pull Shots: Posture

One of the biggest causes of the pull shot lies in the posture. What happens is that somebody that tends to pull their shots is that when they take the set up they don’t bend over enough from their hips. They might bend over enough from their knees but by setting up with their back so straight up when they make their turn their right shoulder will tend to come through the shot too high. What you would like to have happen is that you would like to be bent over enough so that as your right shoulder comes into the shot it is working more down and out towards the ball than into the ball. A good drill to help you get perfect posture and create a perfect path is the “Tilt The T Drill”. What you do is take your stance shoulder width apart, stand with your back straight up and take the club and put the butt end right in your belt buckle. Then extend your left arm directly away from your belt buckle so that the club and your back form the letter “T.” To get the club to the ground all you do is bend from the hips, keeping your legs locked, until the club touches the ground. Then flex your knees for comfort. If you do it this way you will have exactly the perfect posture to allow your shoulders to bring the club through on the perfect path, eliminating that pull shot.
