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.
