- Your glove should have a logo or badge on the back of the hand. When taking your grip, the logo should be approximately aligned with the clubface. If you don’t wear a glove, simply focus on the back of your left hand (right hand for lefties).
- Using a short iron and a short swing, hit several short shots while keeping the glove’s logo pointing up through impact and into the follow-through.
- Complete the swing with the club shaft parallel to the ground and the back of your glove facing the sky.
- Hit 10 shots like this, then proceed by allowing the left hand to turn over a little.
Golfers with very active hands are prone to hitting hooks. Excessive hand action through the impact zone closes and delofts the clubface, causing low, left-turning shots.
Because the hands control clubface position, you need to make them more passive at the bottom of the swing. Here’s a drill with a very easy key:
The idea is to keep the clubface square, or slightly open (pointing right), at the moment of contact. You’ll achieve this by slowing down those active hands.
