I am going into the last day of our annual golf trip and I have a case of the hooks that I cannot cure. I've moved the ball to the front of my stance and to the back. I've stood closer to the ball and further from it. I've tried slowing down my swing. Nothing is working. Can someone give me a tip that might help? This has been the most miserable golf trip ever! TIA!
Take the club slightly outside the line up and it will feel slightly outside on the the way down but should be fairly straight.
everything starts with the grip.
clear your hips faster.
This is correct, right thumb is too strong, or must be too much on the right side of the grip. Stand in you address position and put your palms together like you are clapping your hands. Close your hands around the grip like you are doing this. If your right thumb is on top of the grip, it is hard to hook the ball.
The driving range is your friend. As you warm up tomorrow, think balance. A lot of times hooking the ball comes down to weight being behind the ball (or more on the right foot if right handed) and too quick hips (like drilling the ball down third base line). Try driving your legs toward the target harder (keeps your hips from turning too quick). But, when all else fails, think basics -- head down, left arm straight and follow through (then go drink a beer and think about Auburn's come back win over Bama 2010) -- sure cure for everything! WDE!
All Auburn All the Time!

Cptau is right. Check your grip, and try to swing out to in tomorrow on the range. Short term fix but maybe you will be able to enjoy yourself.
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.

relax your right hand. Lead with your left side.
Make sure your shoulders and hips are pointed down the target line. You're shoulders or hips may be a little open, throwing your timing off. Do all of this with your normal set up and just ask somebody if your shoulders and hips are lined up.
Hook can only be caused by club face being closed at impact and club not coming down from inside. Try adjusting your grip, loosening your grip and slowing swing down. Do this first with your favorite iron and work progressively up to your driver
Take a second ball and place it 3" behind the ball u are addressing. On
Your take away keep it low and slow The second ball should go straight back. Going behind you is you starting too far inside. A quick visual. Your grip is gonna be another check point
Thanks for the advice. That gives me a few ideas.
Drink 3 beers really quickly
