Obtaining draw spin with Seve
Around the Academy:

There are times when you don't want to hit the ball straight down the middle.

On occasion you want to create the kind of swerve normally associated with a David Beckham free kick.

And when you move the ball from right to left, that's called playing a draw.

Watch Seve's masterclass

This is useful if, say, there's a tree in your way!

The key is to aim right and close the club face, by turning the club towards you.

Follow Seve's video masterclass and stun your friends with your banana shots.

If you want more curl than a poodle's perm, put Seve's tips into action!
