Watch out for the straight ball
This is for the many golfers who hit their drives either with a right to left draw or a left to right fade….
Most golfers hit their drives either with a right to left draw or a left to right fade and if you are one of these players its important to remember which side of the tee box to use and where best to hit your drives.
For instance, if you normally hit with a draw you should tee up on the left side of the tee box and aim for a point on the fairway that is right of centre, but nevertheless still inside the fairway.
If your draw works as it should your ball should land on the fairway. So should it if you hit it straight.
Try where ever possible not to aim for trouble and hope to draw or fade the ball back on to the cut grass. So often that’s precisely when you tend to hit the dreaded straight ball.
