HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHETHER YOU HAVE A HOOK, SLICE OR FLAT LIE
One of the easiest means to determine whether you are faced with either a hook or slice lie and therefore need to make some adjustment to offset it is to
! While standing behind your ball, facing your target, lock your knee joints and keep them locked until the procedure is completed.
2. Then place your hands horizontally on the metal portion of one of your clubs with your
hands about 1 and 1/2 feet apart.
3. Next, lock both of your elbow joints and observe whether the club shaft points downward to your left side, downward to your right side or remains level.
4. If the club shaft points downward to your left side it will indicate a hook lie for right-handers and a slice lie for left-handers. If the club shaft points downward to your right side it
will indicate a slice lie for right-handers and a hook lie for left-handers. It the club shaft
does not slant downward in either direction it will indicate an even lie.
