Relaxing the grip
If you are hitting the ball off course--hooking or slicing--it is probably the result of having a grip that is too tight or too loose. Most golfers tend to squeeze the club too tightly and the high-pressure grip is likely to cause the golfer to mis-hit the ball off the tee or the fairway and the shot results in a hook. Then, too compensate, the golfer might grip the club too lightly and that result in a shot that is pushed to the opposite side. Grip your club at a five on a scale of one to 10.
Adjust your shoulders
Make sure your front shoulder is squared to the hole, pointed directly at the target. While this is a basic that many beginners learn, the lesson tends to be overwhelmed as the golfer thinks about timing and distance and how far ahead they are in the match.
Super-size your club
If you have checked your grip and adjusted your shoulders and you are still having problems, you may want to try your luck with a club that has a bigger head. One of those clubs is the TaylorMade Big Bertha. The club is very forgiving of mistakes and you don't have to hit it perfectly to get it on track and fly straight at the target.
