We study the roles of quark-pair correlations for baryon properties, in particular on non-leptonic weak decay of hyperons. We construct the quark wave function of baryons by solving the three body problem explicitly with confinement force and the short range attraction for a pair of quarks with their total spin being 0. We show that the existence of the strong quark-quark correlations enhances the non-leptonic transition amplitudes which is consistent with the data, while the baryon masses and radii are kept to the experiment.
