Hooks and Slices.. Related?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.. So I used to be a horrible slicer. I would slice all clubs and it was a disaster. Fighting this slice my irons have a nice draw but my mishits are these snap hooks. My woods are usually sliced. My driver for some reason is always a slice, sometimes straight. How are these problems related?
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks

Tough to say, they shouldn't be related. My only though is that you play a pull slice, and sometimes you pull hook it. But your aiming right, when you think your aiming straight, so it looks like a snap hook. A snap hook is related to a severe inside to out swing path. A slice is usually an outside to in swing path. Its possible to slice the ball with an inside to out swing path, if your leaving the clubface way open, but that's tough to do.

 

My guess is your alignment's off, and your straight is a pull left. Your slice is a pull slice. But, unless we can see video, i am just guessing

I know I have trouble with alignment for sure...
However, my instructor, said I go way to far inside on my down swing. And I guess I'm not releasing my arms in the follow through..
Ill work on that though thanks
