Hit A Draw That Will Give You More Power, Less Spin And Great Feel by Daniel Lee in Orlando Florida

There are few things that feel better than a purely released draw off of the club face. In order to have control over a draw, it is extremely important to have soft hands the are not going "linear". This term is something that happens to every golfer at some point. What it means is that when you are in your down swing that your hands in an effort to try and force the club to stay on line, start pushing up to the target. Some people actually teach that you should attempt to hold the club face open all the way through your shots. Without getting too in depth into the physics, what is simply happening is that it will put tension into your arms and upper body, while making a smooth balanced rotation far more difficult to maintain.

A draw can be a very simple shot, just look at Jack Nicklaus's explanation on ball position to get and idea of how this will effect your shots.

What you can take away from this, is that the farther forwards in your stance you put the ball the more the club is going to have released by the time that it gets to impact having a more closed face and vice versa for a fade.

Simply put if you are looking to hit a draw, you can place the ball slightly forward in your stance and aim to the right to give yourself room to move the ball. Now for a fade you can easily move it back in your stance and aim to the left. This is a very easy way to look at moving the ball. There are a few other nuances that come into play when you are changing the trajectory of your shot, but will save that for another time.

Please leave your questions and comments below as I will respond to as many of you as I can. All the best and remember to take it easy out there. Golf is so much more fun when it is tension free!
