How to make the ball curve!

How to1

 

Mid back position the hands are inside the club head and working up the original plane angle. Face on above shows big shoulder turn owing to the right hip pulling back around the spine to create center balance and range of motion.

How to2

 

Once the left arm reaches a parallel position you will see the shaft angle remains pointing at the target line. Notice the width of the arc face on.

How to3

 

The start down shows the plane angle shift causing a slightly flatter angle from the back swing. Face on shows the body has been transported forward which narrows the arc but makes the angle more acute (yellow to green line)

How to4

 

Practicing this somewhat radical Ricky Fowler drill we can exaggerate the full roll of the release and the right arm can reach deep down the line. Controlling the curve is a positive sign that a player has control over their swing. Curving the ball a predictable amount is one of the features that separate the best players from the rest of us.
