The perfect golf swing when there is a hazard or trouble on the left is one that pushes rather than fades the ball to the right.
The reason why a push ball flight is a perfect golf swing when there is trouble on the left side of the fairway is that the ball starts to the right of the body/target line and continues on a rather straight path to the right.
On the other hand, unless a fade ball flight alignment is locked-in, as addressed in the book, How To Hit a Perfect Fade, a golfer easily can misalign his or her body to cause the ball to fly in the opposite direction from the one intended and land in the trouble on the left.
It is called the double-cross effect.
The push golf shot is not as susceptible to the double-cross effect because the ball starts to the right and continues to the right in contrast to a fade or slice that starts to the left and then curves to the right.
However, even when hitting a push shot to avoid trouble on the left, the best golf method is lock-in a push ball flight alignment during your setup routine.
One of my favorite ways to lock-in a push ball flight alignment and improve your golf game is to perform the Ferocious Push Technique™ during the set up proceedings.
It is easy and simple to perform
Here are the golf swing instructions to perform this technique.
First, assume a comfortable stance and posture and then ground the sole of your clubface in the middle of your stance.
Next, straighten your legs to the maximum and lock your knee joints. Keep your knee joints locked until the completion of the procedure.
Then, grip your club with either an overlapping, interlocking or baseball (ten fingers) style of grip and complete your grip by locking (docking) the lifeline of your right hand squarely and securely on your left thumb.
Keep the sole of your club face on the surface and then raise your shoulders until your clubface stops rotating and begins to slide in toward your body.
Then keep your knee joints locked, maintain your position and unlock the lifeline of your right hand from your left thumb by at least an inch without completely un-gripping your club. Then re-lock the lifeline of your right hand squarely and securely on your left thumb.
Lastly, continue to keep your knee joints locked, maintain your position and then, once again, unlock your right-hand lifeline from your left thumb by at least an inch without completely un-gripping your club. Then, once again, re-lock your right-hand lifeline squarely and securely on your left thumb.
(You must not unlock the lifeline of your right hand from your left thumb an additional time.)
At this point you should have a
locked-in push ball flight alignment
All that remains is to unlock your knee joints, assume a comfortable posture and stance to your ball, center the sweet spot of your clubface as near as possible to the back of your and align your shoulders parallel with your target line–the imaginary line that runs from your target back to and through your ball.
Then it just becomes a matter of keeping your head steady and executing a simple golf swing without attempting to manipulate the club during the swing in any manner.
Discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and your ball, you should observe your ball flying to the right of your target line and away from any trouble on the left.
If you learn how to perform the Ferocious Push Technique™ correctly and, as instructed above, you should agree it is the perfect golf swing to avoid trouble on the left.
