Driver, Fairway Woods for a Hooker

6 posts in this topic

I hit my irons pretty straight. They are old Hogan Apex Edge forged irons. However, I hit my driver and fairway woods with a huge hook somehow. I have been using an Adams ST driver (10.5 degree loft, R flex) for the last two years. I can hit it between 260-290 yards consistently. I just can’t seem to hit many drivers straight except this one, but on miss hits the steel tip on the driver just kills my distance. I have to have regular flex too even though my swing speed is 105 MPH. With a stiff flex I can’t seem to get any air under the ball and can’t shape my drives. I have been using a Ping i15 5 wood for the last few months because supposedly it is fade biased, but I hook that thing terribly too. Same with the i15 hybrid (20 degree loft) So my question is what driver/fairway wood/hybrid would be best for me since I hook my woods so much? I seem to hit the Adams driver with less hook, maybe because the face is square. I’m not sure if the face being square is just a mental thing for me, but it works with the Adams.

I don't see how being a hooker is relevant for choosing a Driver/FW.

Best thread title ever.  And working on your swing would probably be more beneficial then a new driver...if that doesn't work go try some out at golf galaxy or whatever.

If all else fails, call Jack Hamm.

would this be a straight up trade or would it be Driver+Fairway for a hooker and say a 6 pack?

Also, I'm unclear, are looking to trade the clubs for a hooker or a hooker for some clubs?

You must love your hooker. Most of us just pay them to leave. You're buying yours golf clubs? Julia Roberts territory, buddy.

Well, there are fade-bias drivers (sweet spot closer to the toe) and drivers with an open face angle (help you start the ball to the right).  Maybe these can help?

Are you sure these are hooking (turning left in-flight) and not being pulled (starting left and going straight)?
