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.

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.
