🧠Golf Smarter: Fix Your Slice

Fighting a Slice?

You may not need to spend money to fix your slice.

Assuming your driver is adjustable (and whose isn’t these days?), here are 3 things to try:

◉ Adjust the head to the most upright position.

◉ Add loft. This will close the face and promote straighter flight.

◉ Move the heaviest weight to the heel.

If your driver isn’t heel-toe adjustable, the back position is typically the most draw-biased alternative.

      What works for me is during the downswing, when the club is at parallel to the ground, feel like you’re throwing an underhand softball with your right hand (for a RIGHT handed golfer) which allows you to release the club after impact. Just keep in mind your arms and wrists are not being manipulated during the takeaway and backswing =)

      Just turn your left hand (right handed) to the left at impact, think of loosening a bolt with a screwdriver, this will most likely make you hook the ball left, then just adjust turn of hand accordingly until you get direction desired, should take less than 10 swings

      How about keeping your wrist at that position the entire time, instead? Trying to time something right at or before impact is really difficult and hard to consistently replicate.
