How to Nail the Hook Shot in Golf

Learn how to nail the hook shot from golf pro Michael Samaniego in this Howcast golf video.


Hi, my name is Michael Samaniego golf professional at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. Chalk Mountain Golf Course is a championship level golf course with 3 professional golfers, including myself. And today I'm going to talk to you about golf. Let's talk about how we nail a hook shot. Um, to hook a ball, it's like shaping the ball. It's going to go right to left now. So we're behind a, a tree, and the green, our target, is to the left. Now, I can't go left, but I have to make the ball go to the right. That's when I'm going to hook the ball. Or what we want to do is, we want to aim right of our target. And your body holds these hips and shoulders right of our target. The club face is going to be slightly closed or hooded. When I execute the golf swing, the ball was actually going to take the trajectory right of my target picking up the right-to-left rotation on the ball. And as it gets air borne, the ball will actually move from right to left and land it on my target.
