HOW WE TEST

After months of testing and millions of data points, we broke down the Best Drivers for a Hook for 2022.

A hook is often considered the “better player” miss but that is small consolation if you are watching the ball sail OB.

While swing mechanics are always going to play the biggest role, modern driver designs can help keep the ball in play more often.

For this test, 35 golfers tested 38 different models over more than 400 individual sessions. Data was collected using Foresight GCQuad Launch monitors. To minimize variables, all testers hit Titleist Pro V1 golf balls. Outliers were removed and data was aggregated before scores were calculated.

Looking for the best driver for a hook?

Unlike some of the drivers featured in the Best Driver of 2022 article, very few clubs these days are built with a fade bias. Instead, the prescription for keeping the ball from going left (for right-handers) often involves some combination of:

  • An open face
  • A flatter lie angle
  • More weight toward the toe

Before the advent of adjustable drivers, golfers would either have to custom build or manipulate drivers to achieve the desired result. Now, however, the best drivers for fighting a hook offer some combination of these settings. It may take some experimentation (or a proper fitting) but, with a little effort and fine-tuning, you should be able to achieve satisfaction.

With that in mind, here are our picks for the best drivers for fighting a hook in 2022. Conversely, if you struggle with a slice, check out the Best Drivers for a Slice 2022.

TITLEIST TSi4

Given its compact, 430-cc profile, many will assume the Titleist TSi4 is for better, or at least faster swing speed, players. Certainly, either description could apply but the bottom line is that the TSi4 is for any golfer who struggles with excessive spin.

What you may not know is that the TSi4 can also work for golfers who fight a hook. With the more compact shape comes increased workability. That means the head will have less of a tendency to want to shut on its own, giving you more freedom to shape shots—and a fade is a perfectly good shape.

For even more anti-hook bias, Titleist’s SureFit hosel allows for flatter lie angles which should help start the ball bit more to the right (or left, if you’re a lefty).

As an FYI, if the TSi4 isn’t right for you, the more forgiving TSi3 offers the same hosel adjustability and a movable weight that can be placed in the toe to promote a fade.

MIZUNO ST-G 220

Mizuno’s ST-G 220 driver is designed to adjust its way to the desired shot shape. With three weight tracks Mizuno’s ST-G can be tuned to produce a low, boring trajectory, higher flight with more forgiveness, a draw and, for the purposes of today’s conversation, a fade.

Weights can be stacked within the tracks so if you really fight a hook, piling an abundance of weight in the toe, while aggressive, might be the fix you need.

TAYLORMADE STEALTH +

The Stealth Plus + (the “+” is silent, I think) is the flagship model in the TaylorMade Stealth lineup. Like the TSi4, this certainly qualifies as low spin though its larger head provides a bit more forgiveness.

Like the Mizuno, the key to the Stealth Plus’s hook-fighting power is the adjustable weight track. While we can’t make any promises, sliding the weight to the toe position will likely introduce enough fade bias to take “Fore left!” out of the conversation.

CALLAWAY ROGUE ST TRIPLE DIAMOND LS

Best Drivers for a Hook

At 450 cc, the Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS (I’m not sure I’m supposed to spell all of that out or just use ◆ ◆ ◆ — words are dead) is slightly undersized. It has a neutral-to-fade bias so it should play as no worse than neutral for the golfer who turns it over more than they’d like.

You can think of the Triple Diamond as a bit of an anti-MAX D and, unlike the MAX LS, it’s a textbook example of a better player’s driver. That means lower MOI at the expense of the workability that hookers of the ball often need.

PING G425 LST

Best Drivers for a Hook 2022

Unlike many of drivers on this list, the G425 LST has a slight fade bias by design. PING’s lowest-spinning offer, the LST is designed to meet the needs of Tour players and other golfers who aren’t looking for more draw.

In addition to the native draw bias, PING provides a few extra levers you can pull to remove as much left-side tendency as possible.

Placing the head’s 17-gram movable weight into the fade position will build on the native fade bias. Adjusting the hosel to one of the flat positions will provide even more help.

For golfers looking for similar hook-fighting features but with more forgiveness, the G425 MAX is another option. It doesn’t have the native fade bias of the LST but it offers the same adjustability with a heavier weight.

COBRA KING LTDx LS

Best Drivers for a Hook

The COBRA KING LTDx LS driver features two forwardly placed weights. As you can plainly see, the two weights are reasonably close together so you’re not getting a ton of CG movement or shot-shape variation. The effect is meant to be subtle.

With the 10-gram weight in the heel, COBRA bills the LTDx LS as offering neutral ball flight. Moved to the toe, the heavier weight provides a slight (and only slight) fade bias but that may be all you need.
