Of course there are exceptions on both sides, but generally speaking pros and ams create draws differently.

Pros (and low handicappers) create inside out paths by shallowing the club with a lateral lower body shift, tilt and massive rotation. They deliver the club with a clubface slightly closed to the path and produce a soft draw.

This is the proper way

Ams create inside out paths by getting the upper body forward and/or a vertical shoulder turn, so they can drop their arms behind them. Then the arms separate, go out to right field, the body barely turns left of the ball or not at all and the hands flip the club closed to the path. Sometimes a soft draw, sometimes a big draw, sometimes a push fade.

In other words, hips, shoulders, arms and hands working together to create the path, versus arms and hands creating the path.

Hypothetically, if group 2 decided to create an even more in to out path by swing or setup to hit a push draw, imagine the circus that is.

So let me be blunt. If your hips are not at least 30* open at impact, please do yourself a favor and play the nice draw or fade you have now.

I wish someone would have told me this 20 years ago and I might not be such a bitter, crusty, fat, ugly, condescending, sarcastic, whiney, oft injured, washed up, bad tan lined, Sasquatch.
