Hooks Galore! HELP!!!
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
Just maintain pressure in the left armpit, particularly during the downswing and early in the follow-through. Don't let the left arm fly off the chest. Fold up your shirt in your left armpit and squeeze it during the downswing.
+1. Towards the last few holes (when I walk 18) hooks start creeping in because I'm fatigued and stop turning (which if course brings back my GD slice when I over compensate).
Listen to Erik, stay connected. And do a lot of core work in the gym.
I read that adding weight on the toe will fight a hook..also if you swing from the top the ole right hand wants to get in there...X-tra stiff shaft can help if you swing from the top
I've battled a pull hook for about 2 seasons and a pro just fixed me up the other week. I can't believe how straight my balls are now. I'm even slicing balls sometimes, which I haven't seen in quite a while! Here's how he fixed me:
- I was setting up with a very strong grip
- I was setting up with my hands in front of the ball and low. I now keep my left arm straight and ground my club more upright. I was resting the heel of my club into the turf. My setup is much more pleasing to the eye.
- My take away was very outside. I now take the club away much more inside. I think about hitting my right hip with my right elbow.
Hope this helps.
