My normal ball flight is a draw but late last month all I could do was hit straight pushes to the right. I happened to be thumbing through an issue of Golf Digest and Hank Haney (or maybe it was Leadbetter) had an article with advice for draws and fades. He said focus on turning your shoulders level to the ground as you swing towards the ball.

I put this into action and voila, my draw came back.

I was also pushing my irons. This time I focused on making a full finish and not cutting off my follow-through. Voila, straight at the pin.

I'd like to add just a bit to this.

One small tip a local pro gave me a bit ago was, if you're having trouble with your follow through, assume the stance you want to be at when you finish your stroke...and hold it for a minute or two. This will give your muscles a little extra help that they might need to get there.
