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.
