Nothing more discouraging than the ball tearing off down the fairway than hitting the right hand blinker and ending up in the woods. Misery loves company as almost 80% of all golfers struggle with the dreaded slice.
Only one thing can cause a slice….just one thing – An Open Clubface. Your clubface must be open at impact for the ball to slice into the woods.
We are going to give you 5 aspects of your golf swing to work on over time to help remedy your slice:
Fix your Address position. Make sure that you are properly aligned to the target so that your body is pointed to the target… lay down two clubs while you are addressing the ball.
Fix your Backswing: Many times we see that players have tendency to drag the club excessively to the inside thus rolling the clubface open during the backswing. What is a squareclubface and what does it feel like? First you must feel a square clubface. Place a club along your feet line and match the club over your feet when your club is parallel to the ground with the clubface slightly turned in and the face looking back at the ball.
Fix Your Downswing: The point of no return your clubface must be square or the ball will slice. Since you have been slicing the ball for quite some time you must feel an effective release. Your arms must cross over each other as the body is unwinding. This must happen earlier in the downswing process…feel the right arm crossing over the left to square you clubface.
Fix your Follow Through: Have you ever thrown a ball off your back foot…yet we see golfers all the time with their weight moving away from the target. This is a recipe for the slice or really the result of a poor swing. On the downswing feel the weight transfer to the forward foot helping you sling the club through the hitting area with your arms crossing over. By finishing on the forward foot you are at least helping yourself generate the necessary force to effectively swing the club and square the clubface.
With the proper technique, your slice can be a thing of the past. For more swing tips email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
