Producing a nice pull cut requires some very specific alignments in the downswing. We’re going to talk about what we need to do, particularly reference to my lead arm, and what my body is going to do through the hit to produce a nice pull fade and basically an out-to-in path. So I’m going to make sure that when I get to P4 to P5 I’m going to be aware that I want my lead arm to come out. As the lead arm comes out, that’s going to steepen the shaft a little bit. That’s fine because I’m going to continue to rotate, and I want that clubhead to come from outside of the ball and I’m going to work the handle more left in the follow-through. That’s going to create an outside-in club path and promote a nice fade golf shot.
