Hit a Big Slice to Fix Your Hooks
If you are hooking the ball, you might want to try hitting a big slice to fix it.
Most golfers try hitting it straight. But instead of trying to hit it straight, you should learn to fade the ball. Once you understand how you can change your ball flight, you will have better understanding of how to fix your hooks.
So let's start hitting a big slice.
1. Pick two targets
If you hit it 140 yards with your 7 iron, your targets should be 130 yards away.
Pick one target on the right side. Pick another target on the left side. Two targets should be about 50 yards apart.
2. Set up to the left target. Align your body parallel to the line from the ball to the left target. But aim your face to the right target. Position your ball one to two ball length right of center.
3. When you aim your clubface, you need to rotate your face open before gripping the club.
4. Swing along your feet line. Try to start your ball to the left target and then curve it to the right target.
You should swing with 60% of your power.
