I know how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to hit a golf ball and all of your shots are going left. I hear this from my golfers all the time, so let’s break down what is happening with your swing that causes these errant shots. The first thing we want to do is assess if there is an issue with your grip or alignment on the club head. If this seems to be the case then check out our blog post about why am I hitting my Golf Shots Left? There are some simple things you can do at home to fix any problems with your grip or alignment before stepping onto the course again. What if those seem ok?
I’m sure you’ve had this happen before. You’re playing golf and every shot goes left of the target. Your swing feels good, but your shots just won’t go straight. What’s going on? There are many possible explanations for why all your shots keep going to the left:
– too much clubface open at address;
– poor grip pressure;
– not enough weight on right side; etc.
I’ll break down some common reasons that may be causing this problem and give some tips to help you correct it!
Golfers should keep their head down and shoulders back
If you’re a golfer, chances are that you’ve had this happen to you before. You go to take your shot and it curves way off to the left of the hole. Maybe your shoulders were slouched over or maybe your eyes were too close together? Well, there’s an easy fix! Golfers should try focusing on keeping their head down with their back straight up-and-down, not hunched forward. This will help keep their swing more level which will in turn lead them to have straighter shots.
Shoulders are a common culprit for golfers who tend to hook their shots. Golfers should keep their head down and shoulders back when they swing, this will help make sure the clubface is square at impact.
Grip the club with a firm grip, but not too tight
Golf is a game of finesse. The more control you have over your shots, the better off you are when it comes to determining where the ball goes. There’s an easy fix for all those golfers who keep pushing their shots left: grip the club with a firm grip, but not too tight. It might take some practice at first, but in time this will bring consistency in your swing and precision in your aim!
Grip the club with a firm grip, but not too tight. The right hand should be on top of the left and touching it as closely as possible without overlaying fingers. Keep your elbows by your side with hands positioned in front of you at waist level.
The golfer’s feet should be shoulder-width apart, with knees slightly bent
If you’re struggling to stay balanced on the golf course, it could be due to your stance. The golfer’s feet should be shoulder-width apart, with knees slightly bent so that when they swing for their next shot they are in position to hit the ball solidly and keep their balance. Practice this technique until it becomes natural so you can start sinking those putts!
A golfer’s feet should be shoulder-width apart, with knees slightly bent. The ball should be placed in the middle of the stance and then you need to swing your arms back and down towards the ground while keeping them straight. As you bring your arm forward, it is important that it goes behind the ball for a full follow through.
Keep your weight on the balls of your feet for balance and stability
If you’re finding that all your golf shots are going left, it’s likely because you’re not keeping your weight on the balls of your feet. This causes a loss in balance and stability and leads to poor ball contact. To correct this, practice standing with your weight on the balls of your feet for 10 minutes at a time while balancing an object such as a book on top of one foot. Do this before each shot until you find improvement!
“Golf is a difficult sport to master. There are so many factors that can affect your shot, such as the temperature and wind speed. One factor you might not have thought of is how balanced your weight distribution is when you swing the club. Keeping your weight on the balls of your feet will give you stability and balance in order to hit shots straight.”
“How do I know if my weight distribution isn’t right?” “Simple: keep track of how many shots go left during a round and then take note of what position you were in at the time. You want to make sure that most or all swings occur while standing on the ball of both feet – this will help with balancing!”
Take a deep breath before you swing to relax yourself so that you can concentrate on hitting the ball squarely
Every golfer has a different swing and a unique set of physical abilities. Unfortunately, the more you play golf, the more you develop muscle memory to your swing that can lead to bad habits. In fact, many times if you have been playing for years and are struggling with something as simple as hitting shots straight it may be because of some bad habits from your past.
For example, one common mistake is gripping the club too tightly which makes it very difficult to control your wrists when swinging which in turn leads to an uncontrolled shot flying off left or right instead of straighter down the fairway like intended! If this sounds like something that might apply to you take a deep breath before you swing so that you can relax yourself enough so that any tension.
It can be frustrating when you hit the ball and it goes left every time. But, there are a few simple things that you can do to make sure your next shots go right.

Swing slowly through the ball to maintain control over it as long as possible
For many golfers, the ball always seems to head left, no matter how hard they try. This is because when you swing too quickly through the ball, the clubhead passes over it before it has time to react and fly in a straight line. The key to controlling your shots is slowing down your swing so that you can keep control of the ball longer as it travels away from you.
A common problem golfers face is their ball going left. This happens because the golfer doesn’t make contact with the ball properly, and they don’t finish through it. To avoid this happening to you, try keeping your backswing slow and controlled, following through with an aggressive motion. This will help keep control over your swing as long as possible which should lead to better results on the course!
The club is too far from your body
Do you have a hard time hitting your golf shots straight? When I first started playing, I noticed that my golf shots would always go left. I tried to figure out what was going on and realized that the club was too far from my body.
This causes me to choke down on the handle of the club in order for it not to be so far away from my hands when they come into contact with it. This can cause an improper swing which will result in a slice or hook depending on how much is choked down (too close). The solution is very simple: bring your grip closer towards your body and see if this solves the problem!
The club is too far from your body, which causes it to hit the ball with less force. The result? Your shots go left. Here’s how you can fix that problem:
1) Stand closer to the golf ball
2) Move your feet back onto the ground behind you before swinging
3) Hold your arms out in front of you as if they were a wall and try to keep them there through impact.
The ball position is in the wrong place
Did you know that the club is too far from your body when you swing? It’s time to go back to basics and get in-to alignment!
One of the most common mistakes golfers make is not being aligned properly. They are either too close or too far away from their ball, which can cause a lot of problems. The further away they are, the more likely it will send the shot left. This could be because they have an incorrect stance, grip, address position or other aspects that need correcting. Take some time this week to check your alignment and fix any errors so that your next round won’t end with frustration over missed shots!
Many golfers struggle with a slice and often believe that their swing is the problem. However, it’s usually something much simpler. The club is too far from your body causing you to have an improper swing plane which in turn causes the ball to go left every time. In this blog post we’ll show you how to fix this issue so that you can start hitting straight shots again!
You’re using a club that’s too long for you
If you’re having a hard time hitting the ball straight, it’s probably because you’re using a club that’s too long for your height. Golf clubs are designed for people of different heights and if yours is too long, then your swing will be off and the ball won’t go where you want it to. You can get fitted at any pro shop or sporting goods store so stop shooting yourself in the foot by continuing to use an unsuitable club!
The most common reason why your golf shots are going left is because you’re using a club that’s too long for you. Golf clubs come in different lengths, and when they’re the wrong length, it can cause problems with your swing. It may be worth getting fitted at a sporting goods store or by a professional to make sure you have the right size of clubs for your height and weight.
A helpful tip is to put an alignment stick on the ground before taking practice swings so that you know which way to aim if these mishaps happen again!
Your grip on the club is incorrect and not allowing you to square the club face to the ball at impact
You may be struggling to square the club face with your golf shots if you are gripping the club incorrectly. The grip on the club can either allow for a square shot or an open shot depending on where you place your hands. To get a squarer shot, make sure that both of your thumbs are pointing in opposite directions when they wrap around the handle of the club. This will ensure that when you swing, there is no way to rotate it outwards and create an open stance.
It could be an issue with alignment
I have a feeling you are not gripping the club correctly. When you grip the club, your palms should be facing each other. One of my favorite golf instructors, Andy Plummer states “the left hand is going to hold onto the shaft and keep it from twisting out of position while the right hand will control how much pressure is applied to the ball.”
In order for this process to work properly, your hands need to rotate on their axis as you swing through impact. This allows your body weight to transfer into a square club face at impact which leads towards hitting shots straight! The more time and effort you put in now will pay off with straighter shots and better scores later!
Golfers often ask about why their golf shots are going left. There are a few things that could be the cause of this, but one common reason is an incorrect grip on the club and not being able to square up the club face.
The key to a good swing with a good shot is having your hands in front of you gripping the club correctly so that when you take your backswing, you have plenty of room for error. If your grip is too far on top or too close to the bottom it will make it difficult for you to square up at impact and also may lead to some bad habits down the road such as slicing or hooking which can turn into major problems if not corrected early on.
Try changing your stance by moving your feet closer together or farther
Are you a golfer experiencing problems with your shots going left? This is a common problem among golfers and there are some easy adjustments that can be made to fix this. One of the most common issues is stance, so try making some changes by moving your feet closer together or farther from each other until you find what works best for you.
The head pro at my local golf course says that for many people, the problem is in their stance. The golfer should try moving his/her feet closer together or farther apart to see what helps get the ball out straight. I’m considering trying this next time I go to play a round of golf.
