How to Fix a Duck Hook with the Driver

Have you ever been on the golf course or driving range and wondered how to fix a duck hook with the driver?

The duck hook is a shot that nobody wants to hit - especially if there is trouble down the left side of the fairway.

Neal was experiencing some of the same issues and wrote:

I’ve been struggling lately with my driving.  I’ve been hitting a duck hook with the driver, and I would love to be able to hit the ball straighter.  Do you have any suggestions to help me out?

Before we get started, there is one thing I would like to bring to your attention, which is the importance of where you are striking the ball on the club face.

I would like you to get a canister of Dr. Scholl’s foot spray, and lightly spray the face of your driver.

After you’ve done this, I’d like you to hit a few shots.

The chalk on the face will give you visual feedback, showing you where you’re striking the ball.

If the ball marks happen to be out on the toe, this is contributing to the excess curvature that you’re experiencing on your tee shots.

We must address and fix this issue before we start working on anything else.

If the ball marks are in the middle of the club face, and you are still struggling with a duck hook, then this next segment is going to be for you.
