Shifting the path left

10 posts in this topic

I've been hitting some pretty big draws and some pretty big pushes over the last couple of weeks. Video shows that I'm swinging way out to the right.

How would I shift the path more left? Is there a drill for that?

Can be tough to say why it's happening without seeing a video.

First thing I would look at, is the head staying steady?  If it's moving back, your shoulders would be turning too flat and for some players that can rotate the path too far to the right.  Just depends how they compensate.

If you think the backswing is in good shape then keep reading.

Check out this video, make sure as you transfer the weight forward you are also opening up the hips.  If you're too closed with the hips and shoulder that could create some issues with the path being too far to the right.  Also make sure the left shoulder doesn't raise too fast.  Almost stays at the same level from A4-5, pic below.

I have a video in the 'my swing' section It's really frustrating dealing with this because it derails my rounds. I'll be cruising along at one or two over, and then I block one into the trees.

Hi..first post here on this site! Your problem is exactly the same issue I fight as well. I usually play a pretty big push draw but sometimes i'll block a few, sometimes shut down the face too much and hook the ball too much. Last time I saw my swing path numbers I was something like 8 or 9* to the right. I was told my right shoulder worked down to much and got my elbow a bit trapped on my hip so the fix, for me at least, was trying to feel a more rotational move and getting the shoulder more out and down. I was told I had too much tilt and needed to both my shoulders and hips working more around. I also set up a bit more open at address to help with this. I have a pretty active lower body leg drive when I start my downswing and it definitely helped me to feel like my hips were rotating more and sliding less and my shoulders were turning more level and not so steep. GL and hopefully this helps!

He definitely has issues..haha. He told me there's actually some really good info on some of the online forums. He just told me he was banned from yours for arguing points but that I should try to log in and see what happens. Oh yea..he also said that you guys would probably have some sort of computer monitoring tracking and I thought he was full of it. Don't worry about me...I ( we) will be out of your hair in no time.

I have the opposite problem...can't get anything pushed to the right. All pull fades / pull with driver and pull draws with irons. :(

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
