Are you having troubles learning how to hit a draw? Do you find your draw turns into an

out of control hook? This is Sean McTernan and your watching another episode of My Golf Tutor the number one place on the internet to play your best golf now. Welcome back to another episode of My Golf Tutor and todays question comes from Steve, "hi, Sean my name is Steve and my question is I struggle to hit a consistent draw a lot of holes on my golf course are right to left that require a draw shot. I try rolling my wrists at the bottom of my swing to hit the draw. This leads to hooks and inconsistent shots. How can I

hit a consistent draw?" So Steve in order to get your draw a little more consistent there are a couple of things that you absolutely must do. The next time you go to the driving range I would like you to picture the following. I would like you to imagine the face of a clock, our target is going to be twelve o'clock, three o'clock is going to be here, six o'clock here and nine o'clock here. The number one thing I like to work on when how to hit a draw. Is aiming the club face where I want the ball to start. We know from the ball flight

laws that the ball primarily starts where the club face is aimed at impact. So in order to hit a constant draw our club face must be pointing to one o'clock. Now in order to get the ball to curve back to our target, which is at twelve. We have to get a path that is going to the right of where our club face is aimed. What I want you to imagine is that you point your face at one and for me I like aim by body to one o'clock. You might like to aim to two, its your choice. For me I like to aim my face at one o'clock

and for me I like to feel I stand parallel to where the face is aimed. Now what I am going to do is that I am going to feel on my downswing, that the path of my club is getting thrown out to right field or out to two o'clock. This is what is going to help generate some curve on the ball. I never want you to feel that you have to roll your wrists to shut the face down to get the ball to curve. Because remember what I said earlier, the ball will start where the face is aimed. This is why you are having so much trouble with

the consistency of your ball flight. Your face is shutting down and your ball is starting on your face, which I am assuming a lot of times is left of your target. The path is going out to the right, the ball will start left of your target and then hook. So when you go to the range, this is what I want you to think about. Find your target, which is twelve o'clock, aim your face to one and for me I like to get my body parallel to that and I simply want you to feel that on your downswing that you are swinging the club out

to two o'clock. You should not be rolling your wrists. Use your path to curve the golf ball. So lets go ahead and try one and see what happens. So Steve finally I would like to say what I just talked about here is something I would like you to do on the driving range. When you get to the golf course where not going to be as extreme. We are still going to point the face where we want the ball to start to continue to swing to the right of that. But most of the time when we are on the course we are only ever trying to hit

a 3, 4, or 5 yard draw. So simply aim your face to where you want the ball to start, swing your path to the right of it and let it curve back to the pin. I hope that helps Steve and if you or anyone else has any questions about your game please leave them in the comment section below.

----------------------------
There's a way for you to learn how to hit a draw in 3 simple steps.

I want to tell you all about it, so read on...

Steve asked this same question about his game, and I think you can relate as well: "I struggle to hit a consistent draw, and a lot of the holes on my golf course are shaped right to left, which require a draw shot. I try rolling my wrist at the bottom of my swing to hit the draw. This leads to hooks and inconsistent shots. How can I hit a consistent draw?"

In order to get your draw more consistent, there are 3 things that you absolutely must do:

First Step

I would like you to picture a clock face. The target or flag is going to be twelve o'clock. This is where we want to ball to finish.

Second Step

We know from the ball flight laws that the ball primarily starts where the club face is aimed at the time of impact. In order to hit a consistent draw, I want you to aim the club face at one o'clock.

This is where we want the ball to start when hitting the draw. Every time you hit a draw, the ball must start to the right of our destination, then curve back to the left.

Third Step

The path of the club needs to travel to the right of where the club face is aimed at impact, in order for the golf ball to curve back to our target, which is at twelve o'clock.

What I would like for you to imagine is pointing your club face at one o'clock, standing parallel to where the face is aimed. Then, on your downswing, I would like you to imagine the path of the club is getting thrown out to right field - or out to two o'clock.

Bringing It All Together

So at impact you have a club face pointing at one o'clock, and a club path that is traveling toward two o'clock.

This is a perfect recipe for the ball to curve back to the flag.

I never want you to feel that you have to roll your wrist and shut the face down to get the ball to curve. Because remember what I said earlier: the ball will start where the face is aimed.

If you shut the face down with your wrist at impact, the ball will start where the face is aimed, which would be left of your target. If your path is going out to the right your ball will begin to hook even more. Don't do this!!

Practicing the Draw on The Driving Range

Now that you have a better understanding of how to hit a draw, let's talk about how you can practice this the next time you go to the driving range and what I want you to be thinking.

Find your target, which is twelve o'clock

Aim your face at one o'clock

On your downswing, imagine you are swinging your club out to two o'clock
You should not feel you are rolling your wrist through impact, use the path to curve the golf ball NOT the face.

Now that you have worked on the proper feel needed to hit a draw on the driving range, let's talk about taking it to the golf course.

Let's Take The Draw to the Golf Course

On the golf course, this concept is not going to be as extreme or exaggerated as our previous example on the driving range.

What you have practiced on the range is designed to help you have a better understanding of how to hit a draw.

We are still going to point the face where we want the ball to start and continue to swing the path to the right of that. Most of the time when we are on the course we generally hit a 3-5 yard draw.
