Golf Posture Drill to Cure Push Shots

Golf Posture Drill to Cure Push Shots

Other videos in the series Cure Your Push Shot with Chuck Cook:

One of the most common problems with the push shot actually starts with your posture. What happens to people who push the ball is that they tend to bend over too much, so that as they swing their right shoulder goes down too low, or actually turns inside of the target line and pushes the shot to the right. What you would like to have happen is to have your posture so that when your shoulder is making its downward move it is going down and out to the ball, or more out in the case, driving the clubhead down the line and back around to the left. The best way to get the correct posture is the Tilt the T Drill. What I would like to see you do is stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your back straight up. Take the club and stick it right in your belt buckle and then extend your left arm with the club still pointing at your belt buckle. The shaft of the club and your back make a perfect T. Then all I would like you to do is to bend from the hips until the club touches the ground and then flex your knees for comfort. This gives you the perfect posture for the shoulders to make the club go down the line then back to the left, eliminating that push shot.
