How Can I Stop Hooking The Golf Ball?

March 12 2021

If you’re reading this, you’re likely already painfully aware of what “hooking the golf ball” means, but let us quickly review. A hook is when you strike the ball in a way that drives it to the left (for a right-hander) in a low, parabolic arc that peaks early and dives down fast. It is also sometimes referred to as a “snap hook” or played off as an intentional “fade” - a shot pros use intentionally to move from right to left.

How Far Should You Be Hitting Your Clubs?

February 24 2021

It’s thought that answering this complex and enduring question will unlock a treasure trove of pars, birdies and eagles that will propel your game to pro-level status overnight. Unfortunately, like most treasure hunts, the best guidance you can hope for is a vague map of where to look (usually in the form of a Club Distance Chart) that will likely lead you in many different directions, but never to your final destination.
