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.

How To Tee A Ball Up Don’t assume anything when teaching children; even something as simple as the correct way to tee up a ball should be taught
Putting Eye Line And Aim When you set up to putt pay attention to what your head and eyes do when they check the target, players who line their putts up right or left will have their head and eyes move towards their left shoulder or up to the sky rather than directly down the target line
Wedge Putting Drill Practice putting with your wedge forces you to hit the blade of the wedge directly on the equator of the ball, which is exactly where you want to hit the ball with your putter too
