In this segment, I'm going to give you a checkpoint. If your ball is starting too much to the left, you know in baseball, if you're a pull hitter, where are you actually contacting the ball? Way out in front of you, so that the bat has already turned to the left. If you're pulling the ball, you're hitting the ball way out in front of you, so if you're starting the ball left in golf, there's a good possibility, if you're using this baseball swing, that that ball is just too far up, and by the time your club head gets to the ball, it's moving left, and you're pulling the ball to left field. The ball is too far up, and you're pulling the ball to left field, so similarly, if you want to figure this out, well if I want to hit the ball straighter, maybe if I move the ball back, and don't be afraid to move it back a considerable amount. The perfect amount, is if you could do that baseball waggle, and find your correct address position, but in general, if you're hitting the ball to the left, and using a pure baseball swing, it could be because the ball is too far up in your stance, and even though your aiming straight, by the time you get to the ball, that club head is moving left, and you're hitting it to the left. If you're hitting it to the left, move that ball back in your stance.
