- To calm that hook down to a manageable draw, adjust your right hand to a more neutral position, as I’m demonstrating above. Turn it toward the target, so you can’t see your left thumb when you’ve made your completed grip. I also like to put my right index finger in a “trigger” position under the handle, which supports the club through the swing.
How do I stop hitting a hook?
To fix the issue, turn your hand more towards the target, in a neutral position. Make sure the V’s between your thumb and index finger on each hand point straight up. When the V’s are facing more towards your rear shoulder, you are likely to hit a bad left hook.
Can’t stop hooking the golf ball?
The fix for the hook would be to open your stance slightly and play the ball more forward in your stance, opposite the left shoulder, so that your swing direction is a little bit more toward the target. (You don’t want to swing too much to the left with your driver or you’ll start over-fading the ball.)
Why am I pull hooking my drives?
Rather than being caused by a lack of rotation in the lower body, a pull hook typically results from lower body rotation that is too fast. When your lower body races out ahead of your upper body – and the club – the result is commonly a wild pull hook.
Why am I pull hooking my irons?
The upper body obstructs or interferes with the club’s path to the ball. The most common reason players get stuck is, they don’t keep the arms and club in front of the chest as they turn back and through. When the club trails the upper body on the way down, the hands have to flip the clubhead over to recover.
