Alignment Drill to Correct a Push Shot in Golf

One of the most common problem with shots that are pushed to the right is simply misalignment. This can come from merely aiming too far to the right of the target and making a good swing which causes the shot to go to the right of the target, or more often, aiming too far left of the target and then trying to push the ball out towards the target. In either case, a good drill to get you the correct alignment is the “Two Clubs Drill.” What I would like for you to do is to take a club, get behind the ball, and point the butt of the club in the direction you want to go. Once you have that set up position I would like for you to take another club and place it to the outside of the target line (away from your feet) parallel to the first club. This will give you the direction that you want the club to swing. Then take the club which was behind the ball and adjust it to the inside of the target line (closer to your feet), keeping it parallel to the second club you set down. This will give you your stance line and allow your club to be swinging towards your target at the moment of impact rather than to the right. This will help you eliminate those push shots.
