Video Golf Tip | Cure For Hook Shots: Fix Grip

One of the reasons that people hook the ball is that they have a grip that promotes a hook. By that I mean that they have their hands turned too far to the right on the club so that when they come back and their hands reacts to a more normal position their clubface closes, thereby creating that hook. What I would like you to do is a drill taking a tee and putting it between your thumb and your forefinger of the left hand and do the same on the right hand. Then adjust your hands until both of those tees are on top of the shaft. When you do that you know that you have a neutral grip, thereby reducing or eliminating that hooking problem that you have.

Ball Position in Set Up Keep the triangle formed by your hands, arms and shoulders in the center of your body and let the club dictate where it lies
Downswing: Left Side Focus on the role of the left side at the completion of the backswing and start of the downswing
Slice Fix: Grip Change As much as you might hate changing your grip a weak grip is the most common slice fault because you are in a position where your hands can not rotate through the swing
