    Lately I've been hitting my irons with a little right to left action. My short irons are manageable but the longer the iron, the more of a draw/hook. When I get to my 3 wood, I've been hitting nothing but a low hook. It's gotten so bad that I'm afraid to actually pull out my 3 wood. However, my driver has been perfectly fine for whatever reason. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    Go see your local PGA pro and I'm sure with a look at your alignment and swing he can recommend a solution for your problem.

    The root cause of your hook is that somehow the clubface is closed relative to the path of the clubhead. You or a teacher needs to figure out what are you doing in the swing to make this happen. There are many causes for this to happen. It could be grip related, alignment, swing plane, hands flipping, etc... There is a very good long-time PGA certified golf instructor in Virginia who will give you a free online lesson if you send him a video of your swing. Check out Bobby Lopez's website at "quickfixgolf.com" for more info about the free offer and instructions how to send him the video. It will be well worth the effort as Bobby is highly recommended and will you help learn a lot about your swing that you may not be aware of. Bobby has a large following online and he can also be found on his channel on YouTube also. Give this a try.

    Best Wishes,

    I suspect a face control problem as DV stated as well.
