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.

Starting Juniors in Golf There is no set age to start a child in golf; if they have an attention span and an ability to comprehend then they are ready to learn
Square Clubface Takeaway Drill Position two in the Eight Step Swing is the half way back position where the club is parallel to the ground and at this point the clubface must be pointing straight up square or slightly in, players who roll the face open at this point are dead in the golf swing
Reading Greens Start reading a green as you approach it walking or riding up, read the slope from the low point of the green paying particular attention to the area closer to the hole as the ball is rolling slower and will break more
