Here in part two of our Tiger Wood's top golf tips series we look at how the world's best golfer ensures he stays consistent off the tee when playing a fairway wood shot.

Here we look at how Tiger hits a three wood draw - the golf shot he goes to when he is under pressure on the tee. Here is what he thinks when he's about to hit one:

1. SWING ALONG YOUR FEET
The 3-wood draw is a staple for Tiger. With a slightly closed stance, he takes the golf club back along his toe line. The shaft tracks to the inside halfway back. It tracks along that same path on the downswing, allowing him to deliver the golf club from the inside and impart right-to-left spin.

2. KEEP YOUR RIGHT HEEL LOW
You can't draw the ball without releasing the club through impact. But release too soon and you risk hitting a shrimp; too late and it's a block. In the past, he would get up on his right toe very quickly from too much pace in his golf swing. Keeping the inside of his  right heel on the ground longer means he has swung within himself for a well-timed release.
