Stop hooks under pressure

Published:

Are you struggling with a horrible hook when using your fairway wood?

This frustrating fault may be caused by you hanging back with your upper body in the downswing, causing the wrists to flick at the ball, turning the clubface over and hooking the ball left.

To counteract this problem, try to feel that the chest covers the ball as the club approaches it, as TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston explains in this golf video tip. This will help you compress the ball with your fairway woods, for longer, straighter shots.
