Is there a golf training aid that can improve keeping a right-hand players left-hand straight?

Question by Jo: Is there a golf training aid that can improve keeping a right-hand players left-hand straight?
This is my first year playing golf and I don't want to develop bad habits. I am a 25 handicap and I just learned how to pitch a ball although I can't yet control it's distance. Anyways, I can drive the ball 275 yards 6 times out of 18, so the potential is there at times. However, almost everyone I play w/ tells me that I am bending my left hand too much. Does anyone know of an aid or trick that can help me w/ this? Will lessons be useful or is it all mental? Thanks for your time and assistance!

Dude, it nearly impossible for anyone in this forum to answer that question intelligently without having the benefit of looking at your swing. My suggestion is to go see a golf professional and have your swing videotaped and analyzed.

  1. yes, lessons definitely help, IF it’s from a reliable teaching pro.

    here’s a drill that maybe can help. while practicing on the range, take one of your headcovers or a towel or something and put it under your left underarm. then swing trying to keep your arm close to your body so the headcover doesn’t fall down.

  2. Get a golf lesson. It could be that your right arm is going too far or closing (forearm and bicep coming together) and as a result that bends your left arm.

  3. If I read your question correctly you want to keep your left hand, not arm straight. For that there are some trainers that can help you. I was recently at Golf Galaxy and saw a glove that does help keep your left hand straight. It will feel odd at first but will help your swing great amounts.
