I don't know what else to do to solve my golf slicing problem. I know that I could have been better if I could just get rid of this bad habit. I'm already taking golf lessons, and I'm also reading David Nevogt's book entitled "The Simple Golf SWing," especially about curing golf slices
. If you have other tips, I'd gladly appreciate it.
Fixing a slice occurs with one simply rule, swing from the inside (in to out).
My simple drill which fixes any slice I have....
First, you should not sway your hips and your head should have no lateral movement. Video your swing from behind.
Second, I put a tee in the ground about 8 inches behind the ball (6 inches for iron, 8-10 inches for driver). The far edge of the ball is inline with the tee so the ball is just inside.
Your take back should be inside the tee and you should hit the ball sold without touching the tee. If you hit the tee your swing is too upright and you are swinging out to in, and with a open face to compensate there's you slice.
My best picture of the setup...
- - - - - - - - - - X - - - - - - - (X = the tee)
L (left foot) R (right foot)
Start with a 50% swing until you get it right..
Then 90%.. never practice with 100%.. no need to.
Twisting around the spine while keeping your weight inside your feet will keep your swing in to out. Also be sure to complete the take away.. get your left shoulder under your chin. Over do it a few times.
