Blocked Shot

A blocked shot is one that pushes to the right (for a right handed golfer). This happens when the low body is faster than the upper body on the downswing. The hips clear early and the arms are late, so the club swings too far right and impact is made with an open club face. This can be easily fixed with good tempo. Let the backswing stop at the top and keep the club in front of the body on the way down. The arms, the core muscles and the legs should all feel like they swing together, in sequence. Think tempo and you won’t get stuck!
