Game Improvement Through a Custom Club Fitting

Can A Club Fitting Fix A Hook?

The great Lee Trevino once said, “You can talk to a fade, but a hook won't listen.” But Lee didn’t have the benefit of a Club Champion fitting. Whether you want more control, consistency, or distance, there are options within the 65,000 hittable combos at Club Champion that can get you what you need for your game. 

What Is A Hook?

hook in golf (for a right-handed player) can be defined as a shot that starts straight but then goes sharply left. A pull hook is even worse. That’s a shot that starts left of your intended target line and then goes even farther left.  

Why Do You Hook?

If you hook, that’s due to the way your specific swing works. Hookers of the golf ball will tend to come dramatically from the inside in their swing. Said another way, if you hook the ball it is because of a positive club path. Those who struggle with pull hooks likely have that negative club path and a closed-face angle at impact. 

Ways To Fix A Hook In A Club Champion Fitting

While there are a ton of drivers that are draw-biased to help correct slices, hooks are the less common miss. As a result, there are fewer drivers specifically made to correct that miss. There are driver heads that fall into the fade-biased category, though. 

Some of the top-performing fade-biased drivers include Callway’s Paradym Triple Diamond, Cobra’s Aerojet LS, and Titleist’s TSR4. Studies have shown a head can cause a slice to be straightened (read about that study HERE). So with that in mind, it stands to reason that a hook can be handled similarly. 

Specifically, if you deal with a pull hook, that may be fixed through a driver-head adjustment via loft and lie. Some drivers like TaylorMade’s can alter the loft and the face angle at the same time, presenting a club that looks more open at the address position. PING drivers, for instance, will look more open when you lower the loft. Other manufacturers like Titleist allow for a flat setting to keep shots from going farther left. 

Even grip selection plays a huge role in minimizing a hook. Larger grips, for example, can sometimes slow a golfer’s rate of closure and produce less of a hook. Shafts can also have a huge impact, and the only way to know what will work best for you is to try options and see your ball flight metrics in real-time. 

Put simply, yes, a club fitting can “cure” your hook. All of these different aspects (and more) will be taken into account during a fitting so your Master Fitter can work with you, your hook, and any other obstacles you’d like to overcome with your equipment.
