I wanted to irradiate my occasional duck hook, so i had a lesson and he told me to work mainly on alignment. Now i tend to hit a fade on all shots, and my bad shot now is a push fade

Its almost as if I've forgotten how to draw a ball. And i would be really comfortable with a 5-10 yard draw on most shots.

And advise?

Thanks

Without a ball and a clear target you're aiming at it's hard to tell what you're doing.  More likely than not, you're now slightly open to the target.

8.5 Drive,

It's difficult to see because of the dark shirt you're wearing. But I noticed a few things that may be contributing to your occasional duck hooks.

1) Your left arm is bent and never looks fully extended. This might cause some inconsistency.

2) It looks like you're swinging too far back. I don't know if this by design and you want to swing like John Daly, but this might be robbing you of consistency as well.

3) I think you're swaying your hips back a little too much during the takeaway. (see image #2)

4) Image #4 shows some flipping action - early release of the club shaft. Here the face is likely to be closed resulting in a pull or hook.

I'd suggest that you 1st shorten your back swing and stop your takeaway sway. Then I'd work on fully extending your left arm.

I'm really not sure how you hit the ball with consistency taking the club that far back. If you do, kudos sir. But that was my main problem that I've been working on recently.

    • Well, I am glad I can confirm my sleep efficiency is good. I scored a 91% with my Oura Ring and a 95% with the Whoop. Both show over 1-1.5 hours of deep sleep over a total of 7 hours of sleep. 
    • For me, the bottom changes. I don't play on a perfectly flat surface , like a range mat. The course is rolling terrain. Up hill, down hill, side hill, grass height...effects where the club bottoms, sometimes closer to the lead foot, sometimes closer to the rear foot.  I can hit them thin in any position if I don't adjust for that.  
    • I'm 67. I walk and push. I don't listen to music on the course. I get my hour of music daily at home. I don't need the added hassle. Most folks who I am paired with, who do play music, ask if I mind. I always answer no, I don't mind. It's always low.  Crazy thing...9 out of 10 times...they stream the late 60's/early 70's hits of my youth. Often I get offered a hit. lol Growing up in my house, my 33 year old son introduced me to everything from Jack Johnson to Lamb of God. We both play music. There isn't much out there that will offend me. I also don't want to be that old curmudgeon who screams at clouds. I play enough, I see many of these folks multiple times a season.  Its great to see the number of younger golfers on the course these days. Maybe some will stay long after the zombie apocalypse eases. Stay safe and healthy
    • Played Friday with two buddies.  They need a cart so it was cold.  Despite the marginal weather (40 degrees, 10 mph and overcast), we had a decent time.  We teed off at 9:30 as there was no frost and beat the mob.  Had to skip a hole to get around a slothful foursome who refused to recognize reality.  Shot a 79 (9.9 differential if we were in season - bogey for the unplayed hole), which I consider a good round considering the very soggy course This could be my last round of 2020.  The days end early, with sunset at 5:03 pm right now.  Add frost delays in the morning and the time window for playing 18 holes on a jammed course has become very small.  
    • My new goal is to  break 60 at a local 18 hole par 3 course (par 54. Tiny, beaten up crowned greens, ankle high rough if you miss the green. Longest hole is a 9 iron.....) Playing that little course has really helped me dial in my short game.
