Get your drives moving in the right direction
If you are suffering from a hook, then we’ve got a simple fix to get you hitting those shots straighter.
Hooking is much more prominent with a low-lofted club or a driver.
Much of the problems can be corrected as simply as taking a look at your set-up.
- Feet – use alignment aids to ensure that you are not stood closed to the target
- Grip – ensure that you’ve got a nice neutral grip – ensure that the right hand is not underneath your club as opposed to a neutral position
