This weeks tip of the week is a result of giving myself a lesson. I found myself getting to my left side and as a result I was pull hooking the ball. If this is your issue try what I did to fix it. Try feeling your right foot staying on the ground a second longer. This will keep you from moving to your left side to early and pulling the ball.
