How To Fix A Golf Hook

by Steve | Last Updated: 22 August 2021

How do I fix my golf hook is one of the most common questions that amateur golfers ask themselves after they have spent hours at the range trying various fixes without success.

The answer depends on which type of swing fault is causing your ball to curve back towards left field (or right field if you are a left-handed golfer).

It’s frustrating when you’re trying to hit a straight shot and your ball hooks off the tee.

You’ve tried everything but nothing has worked, so it can be hard to know where to turn next.

In this post we’ll go over what causes a golf hook and how you can fix it.
