Draw Problems

6 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Coming to the forums yet again for advice.  I have been consistently hitting a pretty push draw since I took the 5SK school.  However, recently I've had a small stumble.

When I attempt to hit a push draw I am not getting a draw at all, or a very minor one, if any.  I am simply pushing it (which shows I am swinging in to out).

When I started to struggle with this on the course I simply tried to hit the ball straight to keep it in the fairway, etc.  The problem was that when I tried to hit it straight I started hitting straights draws.

I know this may be hard to correct without seeing my most recent swings, but am trying to figure out what I may be doing wrong.  I am assuming in the push draw failure I am simply not closing the club face to my path.

What am I doing it when trying to hit it straight?

Very frustrating.  Thanks for the help.

How far to the right is the ball starting?  Ideally for a push draw, if you start the ball on the correct start line and it doesn't draw back, you would still be on the green, in the fairway, etc.  In other words, it's not like we're trying to start every shot 20 yards right of the target and draw it back ;-)

It is not going far off target.  I didn't intend for it to sound like I was pushing 20 yards to the right.  Generally if I am aiming at a stick in the middle of the green I am landing just off the green to the right.  After what I felt was my attempt to stop drawing the ball (and failing) I was missing off to the left a bit.  It could be an alignment issue.  I will say that the one thing I was I had pushed for more information at the school was how to aim correctly at a target when attempting to hit a draw.

Stock shot: aim the face where you want it to start and aim the body at the target.  On the course if you need a little more draw, you can just aim the body a little to the right.  On the range, if you don't see the ball drawing, I would focus on Key#2.  Maybe go back and look at notes from the 5SK school.  Could be other issues at play but without seeing the swing, this would be my advice.

What did you do differently  to make this adjustment?

Sorry, I lost track of this when I got busy at work.  Thanks for the advice.  I had a good range session last night and was hitting the ball much better on the course today.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
