The hook or the slice happens to all golfers, whether amateur or professional. When you’re least expecting it, you wind up and unleash a drive that takes off in a direction you hadn’t planned, and you try to adjust your swing on the next tee. If you make the right change, you can get back on track and find your optimal driver accuracy; if you make the wrong one, you risk exacerbating the problem.
We’re going to help you make the right change so you can cure the hook or slice that’s dominating your tee shots and improve your driver accuracy. Believe it or not, the cure for almost any shanked shot isn’t a total overhaul of your swing; all it takes is a minor adjustment in either your grip or your stance. In this lesson, we teach you about the principles of shot shaping and trajectory control so you can get a handle on your driver accuracy and even improve your distance off the tee.
