Do you hook the ball frequently, and as a result lose tee shots or hit approaches that are way off line?
You’re not alone. Hooking the ball is one of the most common problems for recreational golfers and pros alike. The more hooks you hit with your driver, the worse it gets, inviting more and more pulls way left of the fairway (or right of the fairway if you’re a southpaw like Phil Mickelson).
To make matters worse, a hook is most likely to turn up at the most inopportune times when the pressure is ratcheted up. This, of course, is not a rare occurrence on the golf course.
Whether it’s a “casual” day on the course with your boss, a crucial moment in your round, or just a time when you want to avoid embarrassing yourself in front of your friends, that’s when a dreaded hook will strike and spoil your day.
