Hitting Pulls with Tee Shots

There are players who occasionally hit pulls with tee shots under pressure.

If you hit pull shots more often, please see The Tips and Drill to Fix Pull Shots.

Pull shots are common not only for amateurs but also for pros on tour. There are few reasons why they hit pulls.

1. Ball position too far left
2. Trying to avoid right side
3. Hurrying the downswing

One of the best female golfers in the history of golf, Annika Sorenstam said she has a tendency to come over the top when she hurries the downswing.

When you come over the top, your right shoulder comes forward and cause you to swing from outside in.

To avoid this, she had one swing thought.

That is to "take it easy from the top."

When you take it easy from the top, you have a better chance to swing on the correct plane.

People might tell you not to hurry the downswing. But it's better to think about what to do instead of what not to do.

So next time on the tee, remember to take it easy from the top.
