Still trying to think about why I was hitting a hook today. I know ball flight laws, the clubface was way too closed compared to the swing path. I am going to go for more on the clubface this time, than swing path. Usually with the swing path, the ball starts somewhat right because it's extreme in to out, and the face can actually aim right of target and still hook. These shots were all starting straight or starting left and hooking. They were not snap hooks, they were about half my normal ball flight and hooking left.
So I decided to take my most recent driver swing, and take a look at it compared to one of the better Drivers on tour, Adam Scott.
Set up, Way too much weight on the heels. Need to get less upright and more over the ball. My body lines are good. I just think I am way too much to far back on my heels. Also my head could be down more.
This is just butt ugly right here. How the hell I find ball from this position is crazy, but yea. Ever wonder if you can hit a ball from a standing upright position, YOU CAN!! Just wonder if this has to do with set up position or not. I could do with ALOT more knee flex in this position. Arm position isn't bad, the body is horribly positioned.
Well we found ball here. Looks to be slightly on the heel, but felt in the center on that shot. I hit a pretty good draw on it. Honestly the arm position is good. I just have no spine tilt at all. Hips need to be more open.
Now can these positions cause me to hit a hook. I am thinking from a too upright position I could get the club too upright and turn it over easier. My best guess. It really did feel like I was just getting the club closed at impact. Like if I set up, and turned the clubface about 10 degrees closed and then swung with a neutral swing path. Hooding the ball.
Yea, I think I need to get the weight more equally on the balls of my feet, and I can probably do for more squating in the downswing (more knee flex).
Thoughts from anyone who has more knowledge on this than me are welcome to advice!!
