If there’s one shot that you need to have in the bag at the Masters, it’s a ball flight that moves from right to left, or a draw for the right-handed player.

Several of the crucial tee shots at Augusta National, especially on the back 9, require a draw. Do you know how to work it from right to left when you need to?

If not, that’s OK, as School of Golf host Martin Hall has you covered in this video segment with tips on how to draw the ball with both your driver and your irons.

Keep these tips in mind and practice them on the range, and the next time you face a hole that bends to the left or a pin tucked on the left side of the green you’ll be able to execute the shot.
