Just have the path further to the right of the face....The End I wanted to put this thread together to help players that have never hit a draw or players that want to reduce the amount they slice

A "square" set-up with the feet and body. Yellow line would be the target line, body lines are parallel to that

Definitely a 2 thumbs up for this post. Good stuff Mike.

@mvmac Excellent post. Still reading through it.

What do you mean by parallel left?

Thanks Mike. Really appreciate these posts. With proper practice and the information I get off of this site I broke 90 (shot am 89 on a course I usually shoot 95+ I ) for the first time last week.

Excellent post. Especially, the video accompaniment. You are so right about how closing the face in all the ways you often hear about is not the way to do it. I tend to setup in a partially closed stance to get the right path but the ball will stay there or fade a little. I come out of it a bit. I am going to work on this. Thanks.

As I said in the post, make sure not to aim too far right. You might instinctually know you're aimed away from the target and start swinging more towards the target. So the path can actually become INward.

Don't know for sure if this is your issue, just wanted to point that out, especially for anyone else reading the thread.

You mentioned the left wrist being bowed at A6 which is the famous position most of us dream of getting to.

Can you give a quick explanation on the "feeling" you also have with the right wrist on obtaining that position?  Do you feel like the right wrist turns down and "cups backward" when going from A4 to A6?

Popular feeling we use has to do more with the lead wrist, to feel like you are "revving" a motorcycle on the downswing. Another would be to feel that the trail elbow stays "under" the lead elbow on the downswing.

This is gold.

Another vote for this "feel" working.

    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.    
    • Simplify. Hit some solid chips. Or punches. Build from there.
