Tip no. 9 - The Push
with Pachesham Golf Academy

The push is actually a close relation of the hook, at least as far as body alignment and swing path are concerned, which is why many hookers occasionally hit a push.

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

The push shot starts to the right of the target and continues straight right. It is caused by body alignment being right of target, an 'in to out' swing path and the clubface being square to that swing path.
To Cure The Push: Make sure alignment is square. When practising, use a couple of clubs on the ground one club pointing to the target then the second club parallel to this, this will keep the feet, knees, hips shoulders in the correct position helping to swing the club along the target line, and make sure you have a neutral grip.
