Overswinging And Pulling My Golf Ball Left

Yup, it is back. For some reason I am overswing and pulling my ball left. This swing hitch happens a few times a year and usually at the most inconvenient time. I know I am making all kinds of swing errors by the direction of my divot and the fact that my ball ended up in the woods a few times during my last round. 🙂 I have a sure fire fix for my swing woes and it does not take much time.

Opening the Door to Poor Swing Habits

Generally, this is six due to weather and life, but seven months is what is available. This means that the time we have to work on our golf swing is compressed and as such many amateurs try to fix golf swing challenges quickly and that just opens the door to poor swing habits!
