For those of you who are trying to get rid of your push shots, that is those shots that start to the right of the target and then travel in a straight line as opposed to curving there, it is important for you to understand what is causing that. What creates those push shots is the fact that the clubface is square to the direction you are swinging but your path is too much to the right. In other words you are swinging to the right, your face is looking towards the right and the ball is going towards the right. What we have here are a number of different tips and exercises which will help you get the path of your swing to go towards the target as opposed to going to the right which is causing those push shots.
