Hitting the High Draw

Problem

Need to avoid obstacles in the fairway or make it around a dogleg with a powerful shot.

Cure

Take an inside out path during your back swing and rotate to keep your body and head behind the ball during the downswing.

Therapy

Use the left side of the tee box with your feet and body more closed than usual. Your hands should be behind the ball and keep your rear shoulder lower than your forward shoulder at address. Place the ball just off the inside of your forward heel, square the clubface up to the target, and tee the ball so it will hit above the sweet spot on your clubface. When using irons, place more weight on your back foot than you normally would. Square the clubface towards the target so it creates a closed club face in relation to your stance, which will cause the ball to fly right to left and at a higher trajectory.
