T.J.,I was wondering if there are any practice tips to help me correct a push with my driver and my irons. I am not slicing, I am just hitting it straight right. Any help. Allen T., via email Allen,The first step is to make sure your clubface is aiming at the target. Here’s how to check. Lay down three clubs, [1] one club along your foot line and [2] one on the target line in front of the ball and [3] one on the target line in back of the ball. Leave about 12 inches between the ball and the back shaft [3]. After you make sure that the shaft on your foot line is parallel with the other two shafts, remove the shaft in front of the ball [2] and then actually hit the ball, making sure your downswing is along the back shaft [3]. Hit balls until your divot is in line with the back shaft. That will take care of your push problem.
Good Luck,T.J. Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher TJ Tomasi, Ph.D., a Class A PGA
