Golf Shot Dictionary

golf p2A “Hook Shot” is normally a badly hit ball that curves hard left. A hook can be from a hitting the ball with a closed club face, or bringing your upper body around too quickly. A shot that hooks is very hard to control so it is rarely a shot played on purpose. A “Slice Shot” is the complete opposite of a “Hook Shot”, it is when the ball curve hard right. A slice is the most common mistake of amateur golfers, by hitting the ball with an open club face and causing the ball to slice hard right. A slice can also be from moving your lower body quicker than your upper body making it so your club face is open on impact. A “Draw Shot” starts out straight but slightly curves left or “draws to the left”. A draw shot can be a shot played on purpose but normally only by skilled golfers. For the amateur a having a shot with a draw is normally because of a closed club face on impact, or swinging slightly inside-out. A “Fade Shot” is the complete opposite of a “Draw Shot” it starts out straight and slightly curves right. Again this shot can be played on purpose but normally only by skilled golfers. A shot with a fade can be caused from an open club face on impact or by swinging slightly outside-in. http://bit.ly./TeedOffMain http://teedoff.com.mx/cancun-golf-courses/
