The two-way miss patterns are usually Block/hook, or pull/slice. To figure out which one you have, recognize that usually one of the two misses will have a MUCH GREATER curve than the other. That curve tells you which shot has a face that doesn't match the path and helps you figure out what pattern to correct.

This concept video is if you have a two-way miss, learn from the curve.
00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So there are a couple different patterns that can create the two-way miss.
00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:16,000
But what I find, uh, stumps most people in correcting their two-way miss is they don't
00:00:16,000 --> 00:00:17,000
totally understand it.
00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:20,000
They don't know what's actually happening.
00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:24,000
So they think that they hit a big pole and then they think that they hit a big block.
00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:28,000
And while it is possible, especially if you have a very neutral path, if you have a path
00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:34,000
that's really straight down at the bottom, then it is possible to have your path shift
00:00:34,000 --> 00:00:37,000
from outside in and hit poles to inside out and hit blocks.
00:00:37,000 --> 00:00:39,000
But they're usually pretty subtle.
00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:44,000
So if you have a big two-way miss where you're hitting at 50 yards off line, then I'll
00:00:44,000 --> 00:00:48,000
challenge you to figure out which is your path tendency or you're coming more from the
00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:51,000
inside or you're coming more from the outside.
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:57,000
If you're coming more from the inside, so let's say my club has more of a pattern where
00:00:58,000 --> 00:01:02,000
it's 6, 7, 8, maybe even 10 degrees inside out.
00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:06,000
Then the right shot is going to tend to go pretty straight because the club face will
00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:12,000
be there or slightly open and it's going to start way right because of the path.
00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:16,000
And where the face is pointing, related to the path, it's not going to have a whole lot
00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:17,000
00:01:17,000 --> 00:01:24,000
This one, when it goes to the left, like if I think I hit a pole hook, that is going
00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:29,000
to have a pretty good amount of curve to it, especially compared to the block.
00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:34,000
So if it's curving a lot when it goes to the left, then there's a good chance I have
00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:41,000
more of the inside out pole hook, especially if I struggle more with fat thin combo.
00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:49,000
Now if I have a outside in, then typically the shot that goes off to the right is going
00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:51,000
to curve a bit more.
00:01:51,000 --> 00:01:55,000
Because this one, I've got the club coming this way, if the club face gets square,
00:01:55,000 --> 00:02:03,000
I'm going to tend to hit more of a low pole kind of like that, where if the club face
00:02:03,000 --> 00:02:12,000
is wide enough open so that it starts right of my target, then with that much path inside
00:02:12,000 --> 00:02:16,000
or outside in, you can see that that ball will have a fair amount of curve over to the
00:02:16,000 --> 00:02:17,000
00:02:17,000 --> 00:02:22,000
This is going to have a very different solution for fixing the two way miss than this
00:02:22,000 --> 00:02:23,000
00:02:23,000 --> 00:02:28,000
So I'll always challenge my students to get to be a detective and figure out which one
00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:31,000
curves because it's rare that you can go from a block to a hook.
00:02:31,000 --> 00:02:36,000
Or sorry, it's rare that you can go from a block to a pole, just like it's rare to go from
00:02:36,000 --> 00:02:40,000
a hook to a slice.
00:02:40,000 --> 00:02:45,000
Usually you'll figure out which one is your path tendency and then you can work on either
00:02:45,000 --> 00:02:51,000
club face control or path control to dial it into a little bit more playable position.
00:02:51,000 --> 00:02:56,000
That will give you ultimately more consistency and more control of which way you're going
00:02:56,000 --> 00:02:57,000
to miss it on each shot.
