What Causes Blocked Golf Shots to the Right for Senior Golfers (Video)

Okay, so we are going to talk about blocked shots, what is a blocked shot? A blocked shot is another name of a push, it's where basically we swing the golf club, and as we hit the ball, instead of going down the target line in here where these posts are going, these sticks, it goes straight to the right. It doesn't curve, it just goes straight out there and one of the biggest causes of this is swinging predominantly too much on the inside and then swinging outside the line. So as you can imagine, if I swing in and the clubface is going out and the clubface is in that direction, that ball is just going to go straight up to the right hand side.

So a blocked shot is a push shot, it's the same thing. Now very simply, you can imagine, if you haven't got time to go and have some tuition, a very simple tip here is to put a head cover here about 1 foot back from the ball and on the inside. And what I want you to do, I am being quite generous here, so I want you to kind of swing the club back and come back to the ball. And you can see I missing that head cover quite nicely. If you are in a bit more, a bit too much severe, you know, if you are improving rather should we say, that from this position here you can move the head cover back a little bit, because the whole idea is, remember the problem is caused by going too much here and then coming back from the inside. And if I do that now, that head cover is going to be moved, so from here, so swinging now, it will go up and as I come back down, you can see now I am clearly missing that head cover. So all of a sudden the push, block, same thing, all of a sudden, it can't happen because we are not approaching the ball now from the inside. A simple tip, get the results very, very quickly, it can't do any damage to your head cover. So if you can’t, you don't worry, just practice it. I reckon that in a dozen balls, you should see massive improvement.
