How to Use the punch drill to cure a hook shot in golf
Golf Link with Chuck Cook demonstrates how to use the punch drill to cure a hook shot in golf. A common cause to closing the golf club face and making the ball hook is the release of the head of the club early on the downswing. This is called casting the head of the club which makes the head of the club arrive at the point of impact before your hands. At the moment of impact you want the back of your left hand flat and the back of your right hand bent so that you can compress the ball. Use the punch drill to get into the later release position. Take a short iron and make half of a back swing and then try to hit the ball as low as you can like you are trying to punch the ball underneath a tree. Your hands will get into a later release position with this drill which will eliminate the high hook.
