“Hi, let’s talk today about how to fix your hook. I’m Adam Bazalgette, director of instruction at Meta Terra in Naples, founder of Scratch Golf Academy. There’s a lot of things that could go into it but there’s really two primary ones and that is, as you hit the ball, direction the club is swinging at, or swing [inaudible 00:00:27], as it’s known, and realign to that club face angle. Almost invariably the player that hooks the ball is swinging too far out to the right and wherever, they’re swinging, club facing contact is aimed left of their swing. That’s how you get the ball spinning. Today, let’s talk a little bit more about swing [inaudible 00:00:46]. You’ve had some great players over the years, Duvall, Aisinger, Turino, that had shot club faces. They never had a problem hooking the ball. I’m not recommending a shot club face.
I’m saying let’s focus on the most important element of it in that swing direction. If you tend to swing to the right, in order for you to straighten that out, one thing you really want to know, and I’m going to face you this way. Ideally, as you’re approaching contact, the handle of the golf club should already be tracking left. If you picture a slap-shot in hockey like that. The club head can still be coming slightly from the inside and the handle going left. Most people get into a really problem when both the handle and the club are going to the right. That’s not going to work for you. Let me show you a little drill here that I think would be helpful. A really helpful drill for path for the player that hooks that ball.
Here’s the drill to get your swing path more down the target line and stop the hook. I’ve got a short iron here, a nine iron, and I’m going to make a little partial swing with two goals. Number one, finish about club parallel to the ground, maybe a little higher. Middle of my body. Number two, and this is the key. Finish where the club is more back in line with my heels or the back of my body. That would [00:02:00] indicate the arch has gone around me a little more. One little thing here too, we’re not allowed to fake it and kind of saw it left. We want to feel like our arms are stable and the club’s left. Let me strike a little shot here. You can see how the clubs to the left of my body or at the back of my body, about parallel. That will really help stop the hook.
Hope that drill’s helpful for you. Hope you’re going to practice that. I have a lot of content and courses available in much more detail at Feel free to go there and browse.
