Incorrectly rotating the lower body open too fast on the downswing results in a significant amount of force. As shown in the image above (on the left), when the hips and knees turn forcefully the club slips behind the torso, causing it to approach the ball too much from the inside. From there, there is only one way for the ball to go: right.
Why do I keep hitting the golf ball to the right?
Because the face of the club is open, the shot (for right-handers) often travels right, resulting in a push-slice stroke. A few players are able to flip their wrists at the point of contact, resulting in a powerful hook. It is possible to avoid becoming stuck by removing a few of unnecessary movements from your swing.
Why am I pushing all my drives right?
Another possible cause of a pushed shot might be balls that are put too far back in your stance at the time of the shot’s execution.

Why am I pushing my irons to the right?

When this occurs, the club face is normally slightly open, causing the ball to be pushed to the right as a result.

In order to strengthen your grip, Haney recommends that your hands be rotated away from the target and your palms be parallel to each other, as shown in the video below. “In addition, clutching it too tightly prevents the hands from releasing upon impact.”
