How To Cure A Golf Pull Shot

By | on June 8, 2012 | 4 Comments | Array

In this tip I show you how to cure a golf pull shot.  Although this shot is off line is not actually that bad of a flaw to have.  I say this because it is still in play whereas a duck hook ends up either in the trees or out of bounds.

In looking at this shot, the ball is a straight shot which means the clubface is actually square but the path is over the top.  So to put it in simple terms you are on the wrong direction so you have only one thing to fix which is your body rotation.  Once you fix this you can instantly get the ball back on line and cure your pull.

    Is it possible to still pull–pull hook the ball by starting the downswing with
    the lower body? I have been working on starting the downswing by moving my belt buckle but my normal left ball flight is getting worse. There is just something I am NOT getting. My game is getting completely off track.

      Yes, you could if the face was very closed at impact. What you are not getting is that when you start your lower body first your upper body must be staying behind the ball. I get the feeling you are turning but you are also into the left leg way too soon. In doing so you are not staying behind it.



      Pull 2:

      Body Tilt – Left Right:

      Just tilt left and right as you hit some shot and you will see the direction change. Once you see this you need to start the belt buckle but feel the upper body tilting right. Also, make sure the arms are turned off. If they are the mass (club) will flatten to 90 degrees to the axis (body) using simple physics.

    Hi Paul,

    I mostly pull my short irons. Is this an alignment/setup issue rather then a swing issue?
