Marcus Armitage tips: How I hit a draw

Marcus Armitage tips: How I hit a draw

New European Tour star Marcus Armitage is our next guest to visit the Shack..
 

Marcus Armitage is a professional golfer who will be playing on the European Tour from 2017.

Marcus was born in Lancashire but moved to Yorkshire to pursue his golfing ambition, becoming a member of Howley Hall Golf Club.

After turning professional in 2008 Armitage earned his living on the EuroPro Tour and more recently the Challenge Tour, where a top 5 Order of merit finish earned him his place on the European Tour.

The 29-year old joined the Pro down the Shack to give us a bit of help in how to hit a draw..

Well the draw isn’t my favourite shot, I’m definitely more of a fader of the ball..

But if I want or need to hit a draw I’ll keep it as simple as possible. I’ll shut my feet down and square the rib cage up instead of it being slightly open.

I then put the same swing on it and just basically keep it nice and simple, and hopefully we will see the draw we want.

The Pro asks Marcus about his hands and whether or not he feels like he releases them after impact.

No I just try and put the same swing on it but with a different set up really.

So remember;

  • Shut the feet down and aim a little right
  • Square the chest off
  • Just swing normally
