November 2008
Golf Magazine;Nov2008, Vol. 50 Issue 11, p152
The article offers information on how golfers should compensate their hook or slice. It is appropriate to align oneself toward the right and close one's stance slightly to encourage a swing to follow an inside-out path. For severe hook, golfers should aim their body slightly left of the target to make an outside-in swing and straighten out their ball flight. One's body alignment is the only thing that golfers should alter when they neutralize a hook.
