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.
