Cure For Push Shots: Bad Finish

Cure For Push Shots: Bad Finish

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

Often times, what creates that push shot, is a player might have that perfect set up, a perfect backswing, start the club down perfectly and continue rotating around to the target, but as they do so their arms separate away from the body, taking the club out to the right of the target, thereby pushing the shot. What you would like to have happen is that as you make your downswing, as your body is rotating around to the target, your left arm wants to stay connected to your left side so that the club stays with your turn. Thereby going down the target line and back around to the left, into a finish that is a little bit more around than what happens when your arms separate away from you. An excellent drill to get this left arm connection is the Head Cover Drill. Just take a head cover, fold it up, and put it underneath your arm. Then practice making half backswing and full follow-throughs, keeping the head cover connected underneath your left arm to allow the club to go down the line and back around to the left. This is a wonderful drill to help you get rid of that push shot.

Aiming Lines On Putters The lines on the head of your putter effect your aim, no lines aims up right, a top line a little more left, a bottom line more left and three lines the most to the left
Practice to Targets and Areas Learn consistency and ball control by always aiming at specific targets when you are on the practice range, but do not just aim at the target, use the entire target area, aim to the left, right, short and long and develop that control to hit more fairways and greens than you ever imagined
The Parents' Role In Junior Golf Encourage your kids to play golf by taking them with you when you play and practice and consider getting them an instructor once they get older and stop listening to you
