Hooking my irons?

Recommended Posts

Jbmx329    0
I finally beat my slicing problem and started hitting my driver nice and straight. Now that it is straight with a slight draw, I hook my irons terribly. But not a pull hook, it's more just a very big draw. I start it at the right side of the green, and it will hook over to the other side and then land left of the green. I however have good contact and the distance is still pretty accurate. Sometimes I can hit the green, but it would be much either if I could straighten it out, mainly because it's hard to get the ball to stop when it lands with draw spin. And tips?

Hi welcome to the site.

You might be staying closed too long with the body. Would recommend posting a swing here

Thanks a lot for your help. I took a video of my swing and is beleive it is because I come too far from the inside. I have a push path and then I snap my hands to compensate. I normally don't have this problem because I have always been too upright. Here's a link to my swing. What do you think? The first swing is the one that I have been having issues with and the second one is one from 1 month ago. And trust me I know my first swing is bad, I've been having issues.

I think it's your position at the top, too flat, and your postures at impact.

It was for me, anyway.

This is too flat?

Nah, he just comes way too far from the inside. One his wrist is bowed at the top, similar to Dustin Johnson. Then he really pushes that feeling in the downswing forcing that clubhead way inside.

Hands, and the clubhead is way low and way inside.

At impact his arms are extended a ton, and a good ways away from his body. He's got great motion, and a good swing, he just gets way too inside, and pushed the path way to the right. I am shocked he hasn't complained about shanking the ball, but he does keep his body away from his arms, so that might help him there.

    • There are plenty of threads here about putting.    3 keys to better putting If you want to work on the starting line, buy a metal yard stick with a hole on one end and practice putting the ball down the yard stick.   
    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.
