we're searching for the secret of golf. If you hook the ball too much, it's because coming into the ball, you're spinning a globe. If there was a globe here, you're spinning it too much. If you're throwing a bowling ball, you're going inside too much. You're swinging out too much, and you're turning it over too much. In order to fix that, think of throwing a bowling ball straight. If there was a globe or a beach ball on the ground here, think of making that beach ball roll straight with your hand. Roll it. Roll that beach ball. Throw that bowling ball straight. So in other hands, with your right hand and arm, when you come through the ball, it's going straighter. It's not going inside out. And over. So I'm going to think of my right hand and arm. You could think of it with left hand and arm. You could think of it both. But you want it to be going straighter, down that target line, with less of a turnover. So here I'm trying to go straight. I'm looking at that beach ball. I'm going to throw that bowling ball -- I'm going to throw it straight. I'm going to throw that bowling ball straight. And those are pretty straight shots. If you hook the ball too much, you're going inside out too much instead of throwing that bowling ball straight down the middle. Hopefully you won't leave a 7-10 split.
