A golf hook can be so irritating when you think the ball is going toward the target and then it zips off to the left. If you're one of these golfers it is time to say no more and develop an understanding of why this duck hook occurs.
Like the Golf Slice, a hook occurs by the ball starting 85% to where the face is pointing at impact.
Then it curves because of the 15% implanted from the path being too far in to out.
If you would like more information on where I got these numbers, visit my D-Plane page.
In order to get rid of this hook we're going to need to reduce the curvature by either fixing the path or the face.
When determining what is causing your hook it is important to figure out where the ball is starting in relation to your target.
Understanding this will help you narrow down the root of your problem and figure out whether it is either a grip issue or an issue dealing with path.
To better understand these two relationships and start the process of eliminating the hook then follow the Golf Hook Drills for help on eliminating your duck hook.
