The Ball Position for a Draw

Paul Azinger who won PGA Championship in 1993 was known for hitting a low fade. But he was also hitting a draw if necessary.

When he was hitting a draw, he said he put the ball little more right than normal.

Why do Most Players Slice?

Most amateurs struggle with a slice. One of the reasons why they hit a slice is a wrong ball position.

They tend to put the ball too far forward. But the more you place the ball forward, the easier it gets to hit a slice or pull.

If you try to prevent pull or slice without changing your ball position, you will hit a push slice instead.

So if you want to fix your slice, try moving the ball back. By moving the ball back, you will soon start to hit the ball that starts right of the target.

After seeing the ball starting right of the target, you will unconsciously try to rotate the face close to avoid the ball from going right.

With a 7 iron, start with the ball in the center of stance. Try to start the ball right of the target and make it come back left.

When you move the ball back, make sure that your hands don't move back as well. I want to see your hands more toward the inside of your left thigh.
