HOOK/DRAW What it tells me:

Your swing path is in-to-out (club­head trav­el­ling to the right of the tar­get) and the club­face is closed to the path. The more closed the face is to the path the more the ball will curve through the air. The start line of the ball will be roughly where the face is point­ing at im­pact. What I need: The club needs ex­tra loft with a more open face. Po­si­tion any move­able weights in the face po­si­tion and a heav­ier shaft can also help.

STRAIGHT What it tells me:

Your face an­gle at im­pact is match­ing your swing path. If it goes down the mid­dle you have a neu­tral path and a square face, which is great. If it’s a straight pull, you’re swing­ing out-to-in with a closed face. If it’s a straight push, you’re swing­ing in-to-out with an open face. What I need: A slightly open face or weight in the toe can help start and pull on­line and a slightly closed face or weight in the heal can help start a push on line.

SLICE/FADE What it tells me:

Your swing path is out-to-in (club­head trav­el­ling left of the tar­get) and the club­face is open to the path. The more open the face is to the path the more the ball will curve. The start line of the ball will be roughly where the face is point­ing at im­pact. What I need: The club needs a more closed face with more re­lease in the shaft tip. Po­si­tion any move­able weights in the draw po­si­tion and a shorter shaft can also help.
