Draw it Low

Problem

Something goes wrong when you try to hit a low draw.

Cure

Make sure you are setting the ball far enough back in your stance for clean contact.

Therapy

Set the ball just behind the center of your stance. The more you close your stance, the more you will want to move the ball back in your stance. The added benefit to this is that the ball will fly lower, have a nicer draw, and will have more roll on the ground. Keep your hands ahead of the ball as you take a flatter swing to help promote a longer inside swinging path. The clubhead should be taken back so it is parallel to your feet alignment for a closed clubface at impact. Your back hand should cross over your forward hand a little to help encourage a lateral spin. As you lead into your follow through, you should notice that your shoulders will turn in a little lower than normal due to the flatter swing.

Draw It Low

Problem

You need to keep the ball low off of the tee and need plenty of distance.

Cure

Hit a low draw off of the teebox. Use a closed stance with the ball placed further back in your stance to gain extra yardage by allowing the ball to get some extra roll. This can be an excellent shot to master for windy days.

Therapy

Place the ball towards the center of your stance and choke down a little on the grip. Take a closed stance to allow you to swing on an inside line. Drop your back foot behind your front foot to help aim your body to the right of the target. Keep your hands ahead of the ball as you take a flatter swing to help promote a longer inside swinging path. The clubhead should be taken back so it is parallel to your feet alignment for a closed clubface at impact. Your back hand should cross over your forward hand a little to help encourage a lateral spin. As you lead into your follow through, you should notice that your shoulders will turn in a little lower than normal due to the flatter swing.
