Best Way to Play Golf Push ShotTo address and fix a golf push shot, Golf Genie™ Pocket Guides recommends the following golf tips.
A golf PUSH shot is a golf shot that starts right of target and continues straight right.
Common causes of a golf push shot:
1. Body alignment is right of target.
2. In downswing, the club shaft path may be below the ideal swing plane resulting in a swing path that is too flat or excessively “in to out” which can direct the ball to the right of target
3. Another common cause of a push shot is too weak of a grip which encourages an open clubface at impact which will send the ball to the right
4. An open clubface at impact can result in a push shot. An open clubface at impact can be caused by too weak of a grip (see above) or by a late release.
Fix a Golf Push Shot:
To fix a golf push shot, follow the steps below either between shots on the course or as you practice golf on the range:
1. Align parallel to the target line in a square stance. To help visualize, think of standing on a railway line where the ball is placed on the furthest rail (the “target line”) and your body is set up parallel to the target line along the closest rail (the “body line”).
2. Check your grip and ensure that it is neutral with a square clubface.
3. Take a slow motion practice swing and ensure that your swing path is not too flat or “inside to outside,” but rather down the target line toward the target.
4. Check your impact position and make sure that your clubface is square at impact.
