Drawing turns to snap hooking on certain clubs... Now what!

4 posts in this topic

Ive changed my swing in the past season and started off this season fresh with some Cobra Amp Cell irons that are stiff shaft. Hard to hit at first but now im finally finding a consistent strike with each iron and the distances are starting to lock in. My shots are still pretty high, even for a 4i, I feel my shots should be lower, but that's something I also have to go to the range to work on.

So lets see each shot im playing a slight draw, haven't really found the good method for shaping a shot, but im aiming mostly for the center of the greens from 140 yards back at least. But now all of a sudden I am snap hooking my hybrid off the tee, or anywhere in fact. That is also my only club that has a regular flex shaft. I got the hybrid on sale, maybe time to upgrade it. Low shot and a snap-hook and im thinking its mostly due to the shaft. But I also tend to snap hook my 3 wood as well ever now and then, still not sure why problems like these occur on a random day but that's golf.

Im thinking the sometimes thinned shots, and low shots are also caused by my follow-through after striking the ball. Maybe to much backwards movement with my body after my shot. Either way its something I have to experiment with.

I have this problem sometimes as well. Although there are many many things that go into this, what I find helps me is that I am over-rotating. Slow the swing speed down. Strive for a fluid swing and that should fix it a little for you. The only time I seem to snap hook like that is when I try to crush it.

I sometimes snap hook because when I get to the ball I don't go through it to right field. I swing the club around and finish low and around the side of my body almost. I am pretty sure it's from not rotating through the shot enough with my shoulders. Seems to cause the big hook. So even though it is scary with a hook make sure you rotate through properly. Sometimes I imagine, or even place, a tee to the front right side of my ball and try to swing to it when I practice. Usually fixes it PDQ. And if that doesn't work try messing around with opening the club face from where it is at address now with the same swing. So if you have it closed a lot don't just open it, just have it less closed. Mess with it until you find the position that works Hope this helps some. I am just a hacker trying to work it out as well though.

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
