Category: Slicing

Do Not Keep Your Head Down

When you force yourself to keep your eyes on the ball, it causes you to change your initial setup position and mishit the ball.

Jammed Finish

You cut across the ball, causing contact with the toe of the club, pull hooks or pull slices. You have also noticed that your hands and arms finish much lower than usual.

Swing on a Hill

You have a reoccurring slice.

Out To In

You have an out to in swing path, resulting in weak slices.

Square It Back

You are hitting pull hooks.

Fly Away Elbow

You are a recreational golfer with a pull slice during long swings and it is not from over swinging.

Over the Top Slice

You only have an over the top slice when you try to make a powerful drive.

Forced Weight Shift

You lift the heel on your leading foot as you take the club back and lift your trailing heel up during your forward swing; yet you are slicing or are not seeing the power you expected from this technique.

Start Slow

You have been trying to add a greater turn to your swing but now you find that you are slicing the ball.

Bad Slice Correction

You are slicing the ball off of the tee box and cannot correct it by swinging more around the ball. However, this only causes the ball slice even worse or you hook the ball instead.
