With today’s launch monitor technology, understanding the mechanics of what creates a particular ball flight such as a high draw or low fade isn’t an art anymore – it’s a science. No longer should you be puzzled about how your favorite PGA Tour pro hits that high, subtle draw, you can learn exactly how it’s done and how to do it yourself.
Rory Mcilroy has made the high draw bombing 3 wood famous this year after hitting a tee shot over 370 yards with his three wood at Wachovia in 2012. That’s a LONG three wood! How did he do it?
More importantly, how can YOU learn to hit a huge drawing 3 wood?
The first thing you have to understand is that if you want to hit the big push draw that Mcilroy hits, you have to a particular swing path and plane. This particular swing plane allows you to approach the golf ball from the inside and with a shallower angle of attack.
The shallow angle of attack is critical to launch the golf ball higher and get it carry further. Once you put these two pieces into place, you’re ready to start bombing your 3 wood!
