There is a cure. And it is really easy. Senior Golfers Just read on:
Hitting the ball with a closed clubface, which results in the ball going dramatically) to the left.
The first thing you should do is check your grip.
If the grip is good, and still Hooking, try to weaken the grip gradually moving both hands to the left.
Check your alignment to make sure that the feet, knees, hips and shoulders are all parallel to the target.
Another reason may be the position of the ball. If it is too far back, it may produce an excessive in to out swing path.
Try grabbing the club more in the palm of your hand, not fingers, to reduce wrist action and the premature closing of the clubface.
Make sure that the left wrist is not too loose. If so, the right wrist will control the clubface close it too early.
Make sure that the action begins in the legs and body. This will stop the wrists unhinging and closing the clubface too soon.
There, you see. I said that it can be cured. Although perhaps not completely cured. Even now many years later, sometimes it happens.
But the main difference is that now, as I’m walking toward the woods to search for that wayward shot, I’M SMILING - because I know it is not my ball im looking for.
