Today I went to the range. Back felt a tad stiff, so I stretched to loosen it up, I should have stretched longer, but was running out of time. So, with the ole back a bit stiff, and ever so slightly sore, I began with my PW hitting 1/2 shots hoping to loosen up. I then tried some 3/4 shots, while my back wasn't 100% I tried some full shots. I pick out one of the targets at 125 yards, I did my routine, made sure my set up was what I wanted, took 2 practice swings, my swing thoughts were, head still, don't rush. I swing and I hit a long (for me) push draw, my shot goes almost 150 yds., I check my set up, and sure enough, that wasn't the target I aimed at, so again, I did the same with the same result.
So, I open my stance up some, make 2 practice swings, and let er rip, low and behold my shot goes right where I wanted it to, but the flight was higher, and went about 135 yds.I could feel that I definitely flushed it. As I progressed up to my longer irons, and 3 wood, the same push draw would happen about 35% of the time, I'm not sure if my grip is too strong, as I used the same grip I did before I stopped playing, or if I'm doing something else wrong. I can say that the shots I hit well, were for sure much longer than previously hit, although my ball flight is much lower than before. I should mention that because my back wasn't 100%, I couldn't slide forward as much, and it was somewhat bothersome to keep it for as far as I could get it, if that makes sense.
I don't mind the draws, as I use to hit a draw, but the pushing I'd like to get rid of. Thanks for any help.
Push draws are usually a good thing, are you saying the ball was pushing too much?
