OVERVIEW

Most slices can be traced back to errors at address. As a reaction to seeing shots curve to the right, slicers get into positions in the setup that only increase their chances of cutting across the ball with an open clubface—and that’s slice city! In this video, teacher Jonathan Buchanan shows how slicers can reverse the sequence that causes a slice and hit a draw instead.
