Stop The Snap Hook!

If you’ve got issues with the snap hook, we can help!

One of the issues with the snap hook is that we stop rotating through the ball and we get handsie/armsie and the ball goes leftsie. What we need to do is feel our body finish the swing.

This can be done with two simple drills. Rotation of the hips and rotation of the shoulders through impact. We can work on both of these separately.

These drills are super simple but more importantly they allow us to feel what it is we are doing. One lets us feel what we should be doing before we take the club back and the other allows us to feel the finished result.

    You’re my idol. Simple no complicated drills. None of this 45 – 90 – 180 – 360
    Degrees (s…..)

      There appears to be at least two different type of ball strikers. One who pulls their shot by using mostly upper shoulders/arms to initiate the downswing. The others like myself have the tendency to rotate my hips so fast that it becomes impossible to square the club face. Thus cutting across the ball sending it into a 30-40 yard slice. My understanding are that the hands and chest should be inline with the ball at contact.
      What do you suggest I do?
      Appreciate your brief to the point tips you give us. Thanks!

    Love your simple way of showing and explaining things. I would love to see a few segments on the proper iron and driver take away and maybe you’ve already done those and I missed them, anyway, many thanks

    Thanks. I’ll give this a try. Seems odd but I fade my driver but draw or hook my hybrids??

      A lot of people do that. It’s more of the way the clubs are built as opposed to what you’re doing. They tend to have a lot of off-set these days.

    Due to a hard draw and occasional hook, I use the setup described for all my irons except wedges. Full swing and all, just have to tell yourself to hit at the target and not pull left.

    This has been a huge problem for me for a long time. Both of theses tips make sense. I have had left leg problems for a long time, which has probably tended to make me stop turning and therefore come over the top at the ball. I’m not sure I want to make an open stance a part of my swing, but the drill is definitely on target. Also, focusing on getting my right shoulder to turn under rather than turning level with or even over the left is a useful idea for the range and even the course.

    I like this idea. Can’t wait to try it. I’ve suffered from the “left of left” shot for many years now.
