Your 5-Minute Slice Fix
My new drill will re-route your swing and get you hitting draws. We proved it with 60 slicers
There's one simple fact about shot shape: On the road you take to playing good golf, nowhere is there a slice. You can go from hooking to good golf, but if you don't learn how to stop hitting shots with an open clubface, you won't get very far.
The unfortunate reality is that a large majority of players--maybe 90 percent--struggle with a slice. They don't have a good grip, they make a steep swing into the ball, and they don't understand how the hands work in a good release. Those things combine to produce high, weak shots to the right.
One teaching strategy that has always worked for me is to figure out a student's major flaw and devise a plan for practicing the opposite of that flaw. Exaggerate the fix as much as possible; really feel the change. That's how my new slice drill was born. Slicers everywhere need an easy way to feel the correct path and plane. My three-step drill will get you feeling a radically different swing shape, starting by tracing backward circles in the air. (I'll explain.)
After five minutes practicing the three steps (first we'll check your grip and driver specs), you'll be finding the left side of the fairway. It works every time.
