The only way to hit a hook/draw is to swing from the inside towards "right" field (or down the right field foul line). Trying to hit snap hooks forces you to make a severe inside to out swing. This is often needed when someone has a severe outside to in swing. It is such a different feeling and move that the only way to feel it is to try and hit a "bad" snap hook.
Then you try to find that spot somewhere in between, also known as the "slot"
The uphill drill, or the right foot back drill is what I use on the course to try and get back in the slot if I start to leak them right.
