Thanks, Hank. Your slice cure worked perfectly!!
Golf Digest's fan letters inevitably celebrate tips that work. Lately, those letters have concerned two articles. The first, by Ron Kaspriske that advocated looking away from the ball during the swing, has won lots of fans among the previously ball-bound. Based on the teaching of Bobby Clampett, Kaspriske's tip helps players move the bottom of their swings forward--more like the pros'--adding both power and accuracy. The piece was more convincing because Kaspriske practiced the lesson himself and lowered his scores on average about 10 shots!
The latest tip to win this kind of acclaim is Hank Haney's slice-cure tip
, which involved a simple drill to draw a backward loop:
Make a slow circle with your hands, swinging the club toward the target, continuing above your head and then down and over the ball (above). Focus only on the loop. As you swing the club will naturally drop onto a shallower plane as it approaches the ball, and your hands will start to release, or roll over.
For Andrew Turner of Tulsa, Oklahoma, it was the tip of a lifetime:
Unbelievable. I'm a 13 handicap who has been a long driver (240-250) but always had to play a fade/slice. I tried Hank Haney's slice fix today on the course, using it as my pre-drive routine on the tee box. Results? AMAZING! Only 1 fade ball,only 1 hook. Hit two drives 300+, even paring the 425 yard 18th at Tulsa's Stone Creek course hitting driver then sand wedge to the green! With one simple change Hank Haney has changed my golf life!
