Golf Tip – Straight Ball

straight ballHitting a straight ball off the tee might not be the best way to get your ball onto the fairway.  When you are playing in a tournament or an important match and you really need to get your ball onto the fairway consider your options before you hit.  When you are under pressure, hitting a straight ball becomes even more difficult.  Try choking down an inch or two on the handle and use a draw or fade to get your ball in the desired position.  Practice both shots on the range.  You’ll probably discover you are better at one or the other.  When you’re under pressure plan to hit your draw or fade instead of a straight ball and you will find yourself in the fairway more often than not.
