The left-handed ball in golf is defined as a ball-left-left (for right-handed golfer) mode, commonly known as the “hook.” But this is not absolutely correct… “hook” in golf is the ball starting from the right or straight line, then sharply bent from right to left, and finally to the left of the intended target. If the ball starts from the left and bends to the left when you hit the ball, we call it a “hook.”
It may sound like a subtle difference, but the two ball flights are hit by different swing paths. The hook-ball starts at the right side of the target and bends far to the left, caused by too many internal to outer swing paths and too many hand rotations. The hook-ball starts from the left side of the target and then bends to the left, caused by an outwardly oscillating path and too many hand rotations.
The “hook” is usually caused by an incorrect grip on the golf club – especially what we call an overactive grip…
In order to correct the “hook”, we must first ensure that your position is correct, in addition to checking whether the feet are aligned, be sure to pay attention to the hips and shoulders parallel to the target, to ensure that your grip does not make your hands turn too much…
When on the golf driving range, if your batting point starts from the left and then bends to the left violently, when you hit the “hook”, you can refer to the picture below to help correct your swing path.
Fix the tips for the left curveball:
When you feel that there is no problem with the swing line, the second step is to control the rotation of your hand in the swing of the golf ball, which is why the ball bends from right to left. You can practice in the following ways:
1 Take 7 irons and do some pitching practice swings to keep your hands from spinning in the subsequent stages, just like a full swing.
2 Try to keep the clubface facing the sky and avoid rolling the club head.
3 You can perform quite a few practice swings in this range before you swing the golf ball. It can help you feel your hands when you rotate. Then, continue with the exercises below.
4 First place a ball in the normal position, then measure a club length along the target line and place a ball at the end of the club. Next, place the 3 balls next to approximately 4-6 inches.
5 Swing along the rightmost fairway (be careful not to rotate your wrist) — The golf ball should produce a straight flight to the right and continue to hit the ball on this fairway until you feel comfortable with it.
6 Now increase the power and start aiming at the second ball. Once again, when you feel competent, repeat the process with the next ball and then the next ball. Increase the amount of forearm rotation each time you increase your strength.
Through the practice of this method, you are proficient in the need to rotate your hands and when to rotate to control the flying tendency of the golf ball to avoid the “hook”.
Golf ranks fourth in all sports and often encounters different slopes when playing on difficult golf courses. Most of the amateur golfers are used to practicing on the flat pad of the golf driving range. When the next game hits a different slope ball, the grass is fine, but it is smashed in the sandpit. Especially when attacking the green, a mistake missed the ball into the bunker. What is more depressing is that the position of the ball is still the slope position in the bunker. I do not know how to solve it. Let me talk about the solution to the bunker slope.
The processing method of the uphill position:
1 From the slopes on the fairway, we usually choose a lower lift club to compensate for the very high ball flight. However, when the bunker is uphill, it is generally closer to the edge of the bunker. In order to let the ball leave the bunker, the success rate of the save is improved. Therefore, the normal selection of large angle sand bars.
2 pose, take a wider position, fix yourself on the slope, tilt your shoulders, align them with the slope, and keep the club face up as normal.
3 After hitting the golf ball 2 inches of sand, the ball is slightly ahead of your midfoot.
4 When you hit the ball, notice that the ball is swung along the slope to prevent the ball from entering the sand early when it reaches the hit point.
When the 5 head enters the sand surface, the left foot retreats and the center of gravity moves back during the ball to prevent the head from being deeply plunged into the sand. The club head will move up the slope, leaving a shallower mark that pushes the sand and ball forward. In addition, this action can also prevent the sand from getting smashed after hitting the ball!
Downhill processing method:
1 Open the clubface as much as possible, use a 60-degree sand bar, the ball will fly in a direction shallower than the normal angle.
2 Hit the 2 inches of sand behind the golf ball, the ball is slightly ahead of your midfoot.
3 To minimize the effects of the slope, tilt the shoulder down the slope line. The weight will tilt to the left (for right-hand golfers).
4 Use a wider posture to maintain a good balance.
5 When hitting the ball, use the 3/4 upper rod to swing down the slope. When swinging, the clubhead moves down the slope. Don’t try to dig up the ball. Otherwise, it will definitely be a large piece of sand. It is a downward swing and passes through the batting area.
