Rick Shiels Teaches the Four Shot Shapes (Video)

In this brand new video Rick teaches you how to hit the ball low and high, how to hit a fade and a draw, and when you want to use each of these shots. While there is more than one way to hit these shots, Rick's guidelines are pretty simple to remember and use.


And of course, I probably don't need to say this but I will anyway:

If you are a leftie, you have to make some mental adjustments to Rick's instructions for fades and draws -- namely, when he says 'left' you need to think 'right,' and when he says 'right' you need to think 'left.'

I know most of you lefties do this automatically because you're used to teachers who think all their students are righthanded. But I always like to remind you, just in case you're new to this game. Your fades will behave just like Rick says a fade behaves EXCEPT that your fade will curve from right to left. Likewise, your draw will curve from left to right instead of right to left. It's a bummer but it's just the way life is.

If you're a leftie and need a bit more help, over a two-week period back in September 2013 I did two series of 5 posts each on how to hit a draw. There are 5 posts for righties and 5 identical posts for lefties. Here is the link to the first leftie post. Those posts not only describe the draw in left-handed terms but also include diagrams showing left-handed setups and ball flights.

And as usual, if you run into problems, just drop your questions in the comments below and I'll try to help.
