Video Golf Tip | Causes of the Hook

Before you start to work on getting rid of your hook I think it is really important that you know what makes your ball hook. What makes your ball hook is the fact that your clubface is looking to the left of the direction that you are swinging. Whether you are swinging to the left, swing at the target or swinging to the right of the target, if the clubface is looking left of the direction of that swing the ball is going to curve to the left. So what you have to do to fix that hook is to do things that will allow you to get the clubface square to the direction of your swing. This will reduce all of the curve on your shot. What we have following are several tips that will help you do just that, thereby eliminating your hook.

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
