Hooking Irons

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone Not sure if this is in the right place but I will ask anyway... I currently play a set of cavity back irons with a moderate amount of offset. I hit a fade with my driver, fairway woods and hybrids, but I hit a rather large hook with my irons could this be due to the offset?? Or would it be more swing related?? Thanks for your help

No its not the iron. If you have your hands low in the top off the back swing you may not be closing the driver face through the ball. The same position with shorter clubs that close faster can produce the opposite ball flight. Left and right generally can come from but is not limited to a more "around" swing. Practice geting the hands up in the back and finishing high and study the ball flight changes.

Do your long clubs and your irons have the same grip thickness? Too thin iron grips might cause too much hand rotation.

Have you had a lie angle check on your irons? If they are too upright, this would contribute to left misses.

Any chance you have a neutral grip for the long clubs, but a strong grip for the irons?

No all my clubs have the same thickness of grips just put new ones on this year (standard with 3 wraps of tape) I don't think my grip is different, I have been working hard on it for the last few weeks. And if anything my lies would be flat, all clubs are standard lenght and I'm quite tall.

I'm the opposite of a pro, or anyone who should be giving any advice for that matter. But where I'm at in my game right now, I find that when I'm slicing the ball my grip is too weak and when I'm hooking it my grip is too strong. The grip change seems to help this problem a bit.

I tend to be a hooker also, its usually caused by  not leading the shot with your body and letting your hands pass which closes the face, if you are also a little over the top this can cause a pull fade with your woods  and a pull hook with the shorter clubs.
