In my recent driving range practice, I realized that my ball is going to far left. I am wondering why?

Can anyone assist?

Hi, 

Better to hire a qualified swing coach for guidance. No one here can offer u quality tips because we all have not seen how you swing and how your ball trajectory like. It is only a guessing game by getting tips from here even if the individual who offers you tips is a single handicapper. This is because there are so many variables in a golf swing. My 2 cents' worth ...

Get your friend to watch you hit. First suspect might be your aiming alignment.

Agree. You can video it and good to get a coach to help you or someone who knows the game well =) but a golf coach is definitely ideal.

 But if its far left and its goes straight left could most probably be club face and club path both aiming left. You can check and see how you are swinging it from down the line.

Get a swing coach. We are all none wiser to advise how to cure a pull, push hook or slice.

The TS should seek help from Bernie Tan who is a qualified Swing Pro.

TS must train his body to swing from inside-out in order to get straight shot. If you don't understand this lingo, all the more u need a swing coach. Wink

 That was why when tread started mentioned "ball goes way left"....I was wondering if he is a lefty (where his right arm/hand is the forearm) or like the majority right hand player(where they generally have the left arm/hand as forearm). If it is the earlier, his description would be a slice and if it is the latter, it would be a hook.

Hope I am right here!

Bro, ball going far left can be a pull slice.

Actually, it's all conjecture at this point. "Far left" can be construed in so many different ways... without further information from TS, who knows? In any case, it is still near impossible to judge without actually assessing the setup/swing, in which case it is best left up to a golf pro  Laughing

Not unless he is a lefty ...

Thats really a solution. I've been playing at least a game for the past 10+ years. A known golf addict to my family and friends. Suddenly just felt like giving up. No one believed when I said so. 

Now, I have stopped playing for the few months. The itch is no longer there and the interest really die down. So I say its doable.

I am sure many of us being there. I stopped playing for 3.5 years and am back into the game again. I felt it is those right type of golf kaki that let you going at it. 

As I understand most mature players tend to hit their shoots more draw, push hook or even a power fade. I am sure your far left shoots was not really an issue since you have been playing for so long. One thing for sure, i have yet to see a straight shot by any players. I am sure you know what i mean Very Happy

Sometime it is good to lay off for a while. forget all the bad habits and then re-start. I found that I played better iron shots after a month of not touching the clubs at all. But short games was a struggle as there was no 'feel' on how much strength to chip and the run of the ball. But got it back after a few games.... then all the bad habits also come back...hahaha

Not sure if u found your answer.
The typical answer "go find a coach" is a model answer and i dont know if that's what you want to hear.
Probably easier to use that as an automated reply for any swing question posed in this forum. Instead of hearing from any keyboard warrior.

But I will hazard a guess since u asked.  It is only my guess.
U probably have a pull (using arm) , and an outside-in swing path to give u a far left.
I'm assuming u are using a driver or mid iron that gave u such a terribly undesired outcome.
Try practising with a PW to stabilise your swing path first. Get an inside-out path. Eliminate pulling by left arm during downswing.

And all the best to your practice:cheers:

Ask people around you! I'm sure everyone would be willing to give "live" advice compared to a online forum! 

I would be more than happy to give some tips if i see you around at the range! Because sometimes all we need is a little tweaking! 

Hope you cure your swing soon! 

Cheers
