Step 1: Hips
When you setup to the ball, turn your hips slightly to the right.
Step 2: Shoulders
As you turn your hips, angle your shoulders to the right as well.
Turn the club back and drop your arms from the inside. This will be much easier because your hips and shoulders are already prepared for the backswing.

Why didn’t Shawn hit the ball off the tee in this video to show us the right to left path of the shot ?
This segment is more about the process than the result. Sh

Hi I like your tips it has help my game. Many thanks.
I am going to try this, I’ve tendency to fade a lot, so this might help for some draw shot.
Mary–Let us know how it turns out. Sh
I really like your tips on turning the hips and shoulder before the upswing, it works wonders for me.
Robert–great to hear this is working for you. Sh
Have been having trouble getting the ball into the air over about 5 feet. Had no trouble last year always about 200yards,. Then all of a sudden every thing started being pulled to the left. Like hitting to a third baseman. Have been trying to slow down my swing and hitting the ball straight but not getting any height but straight. I am at a stand still have tried moving ball forward and back same results. Since I slowed down I find that I have been hitting ground behing ball before striking it. Iam about 5’8” 235 and 71 years old.
Frank– I highly recommend checking out “Two Steps to a Perfect Golf Swing”. It will help you reduce the number of swing thoughts and focus on what really matters in your swing. It will also make sure you have better contact so you aren’t hitting the ground behind the ball first. Here’s the link for you to check out: https://www.shawnhumphries.com/store/products/two-steps-to-a-perfect-golf-swing-dvd
Hi Shawn I’ve had loads of lessons to try and stop me from swinging over the top but although I practise religiously I can’t seem to get any consistency and when I have a card in my hand for club competitions I tend to revert back to over the top and end up with a next to useless score. I will try your drill the next time I’m at the practise area and hopefully it will work. Cheers
Paul–thanks for the post. This is all self image driven. Your self image makes you act like you or it tells you its like me to act like this in a situation. The key is to train your image so when you are handed a scorecard–its like you to perform well in competition. If you want to change this–I would recommend you attend one of my high-performance Mental Training Golf Schools this winter / spring. Its a game changer. Shawn
