What a drag!

Today's Golfer (UK) - - First Tee -

About a year ago, I came across a ‘Fault Fixer’ ar­ti­cle from Adrian Fryer sug­gest­ing that in or­der to cure an out-to-in tee shot one should try to vi­su­alise drag­ging the club down a wall si­t­u­ated di­rectly be­hind you. Up un­til that point, my whole golf­ing life had been blighted by sliced tee shots. I had tried all sorts of reme­dies (un­suc­cess­fully) and had for many years re­sorted to hit­ting irons off every tee. I tried the imag­i­nary wall fix drill at the driv­ing range with pretty much im­me­di­ate suc­cess. It re­mains my only swing thought and has trans­formed my game ever since. It has led to a whole new en­thu­si­asm for the game and a newly-found abil­ity to play and en­joy much more chal­leng­ing cour­ses. Play­ing part­ners of many years re­main in shock at the trans­for­ma­tion. I have waited some­time be­fore cor­re­spond­ing with you as I was ner­vous that any suc­cess would quickly evap­o­rate, but it hasn’t. I am sure you are used to this kind of ef­fu­sive grat­i­tude, but I felt that I had to write to thank you be­cause it has made so much dif­fer­ence to

the way I am able to play and en­joy the game. DAVID DAVIES, EMAIL
