Focus on Target Line During Downswing to Fix Your Hook

Stop Hooking the Golf Ball

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.

The Annika Drill for Better Upper Body Release

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.
