How to fix a hook

The hook may be somewhat less prevalent than the slice but it can cause even more destruction. The story that many hookers enjoy hearing and that relieves some of the pain is that "good players hook". There may be a small element of truth to this but it doesn't take away from the damage the hook can cause to a scorecard and the requirement to fix the hook. While a slice can be dressed up as a big fade and often avoid the trouble, a hooked golf ball tends to move with more venom and this is especially true of the duck-hook - the most troubling and punishing variety of this type of golf shot. But, as noted above, "good players hook" so it should not take too much corrective action to sort this all out and the instructional videos below will show you how to fix a hook.
