Hi guys, was wondering if anyone had any drills/tips that might help. I am currently (I say currently but this shot has plagued me for a couple of years) struggling with a shot that starts about 30 - 45 degrees left of target and continues with a flat hook. I can do this with everything from Driver right through the whole set. For example I can easily hit my seven iron 50 yards left of target. Oh how can I forget the occasional shank thrown in.
I went for a lesson with the local pro and from trackman he could see that my swing path is straight but the face is closed at impact and is de-lofted.
I feel this all started when I went for a lesson in the 2015 season and the pro told me to feel that I was hitting in to out by placing a training stick in the ground outside the follow through line and trying to swing to the right of it.
Anyone any ideas, drills, tips etc that could help before my clubs meet an unpleasant end at the bottom of the river that borders our course.
Many thanks in anticipation
