Video Golf Tip | Vision Focus: Hook Cure
By Katherine Marren

Although most players slice their golf ball, good players tend to hook their golf ball too much and they are always looking for the anti hook golf swing. There is a great drill using your eyes and vision to change your ball flight and your ball shape. When good players come into the ball they tend to get the club a little inside too much, their legs are a little bit ahead and their center of balance gets back on their right hip. As they come into the ball their club tends to flip up over and they can really hook that golf ball and it gets them into a lot of trouble with their driver. This drill you use your eyes to look at the target line as soon as you start your downswing. A lot of times we call this drill the Annika drill because she (Annika Sorenstam) is great at releasing her upper body and getting on top of her lower body at impact. Again, I am going to use my eyes at the beginning of the swing to help pull my upper body on top of my lower body. It will stabilize the hands at impact, the club wont flip over and you ball is going to go a lot higher and straighter. You are really going to love it.

Maintain Spine Angle to Prevent Topped Shots Topped balls are not caused by picking up your head, what you are really doing is losing your spine angle and lifting your entire body off of the ball
Fix for Shank Shots Shanks occur in the one plane swing because your arms are too far out in front of your body so concentrate on bringing your hands in closer to your legs on the downswing.
Chipping: Arc in the Swing Use your right forearm to turn as you go through while the left arm is folding in. Make sure to maintain an arc in your swing as this short swing still requires a rounded swing path.
