The term hook is used to describe a ball flight that curves too much to the left for a right handed player. Hooking the ball tends to be the ball flight error of better players but can be a problem for players of all skill levels.

The majority of players who hook the ball do not have a sound understanding of their swing mechanics and how they effect the club face and swing path at impact, and thus how they are actually producing the hook ball flight. Without this knowledge correcting this ball flight error and hitting straighter shots is all but impossible.

In this video I explain what causes the ball to curve in this way and show you a series of drills that when you work through them, will correct your hook ball flight and have you hitting straighter shots.
