How to hit a draw

A draw in golf is, for a right-hander, a shot where the ball starts right of the target and moves left in the air back onto the target line. The draw is viewed by most as a thing of beauty with terms such as "a lovely draw" or "a baby draw" often used to describe this most sought after flightpath.

However, for many golfers the ability to draw the ball is much more of an aspiration than an actuality so learning how to hit a draw will require work. This work though is well worth the effort because, among other benefits, this shape of shot works well in most wind directions and promotes more distance. The guidance and instruction included in the videos listed in this section will help you learn how to hit a "lovely draw".
