Swing Element


The #2 most reported Miss-Hit in golf is the twin sister of the slice with the ball turning sharply left (RHGs). The Hook has a lower-than-normal trajectory and lots of roll out by the ball on the ground. It is caused by the Law of Face, (a Closed Club Face) on the Path of the swing. The leading cause of the hook is the swing fault called a Strong Lead or Strong Trail Hand Grip.
