Fixing a Slice

The oh-so-ugly SLICE is the exact opposite of a HOOK. When a right-handed golfer hits a SLICE, the ball starts its flight on a path to the right of the desired direction, and spin on the ball creates a dramatic curve further to the right – towards the trees, the clubhouse deck, the windshield of your car, etc. (again, it’s just the opposite for left-handed golfers).

WHY IT HAPPENS
When you slice the ball, the club face is OPEN at the point of contact. This means that it angles to the right of the direction you want the ball to go. As a result, the ball goes to the right of your desired line of flight. And with a slice, your swing path is also OUTSIDE IN, which means that the club’s path starts outside of the desired ball path and finishes inside of that path. This puts tremendous clockwise spin on the ball, taking it sharply to the right as it travels through the air.

HOW TO FIX IT

  1. Square your swing path
    • Your stance may not be too open
      Here’s how to tell: if you’re a right-handed golfer and put a club across your toes after addressing the ball, the shaft of the club would point to the left of your desired target. With a square stance, the line will be parallel to the line of desired ball travel.
    • You may be standing too close to the ball
      If your swing path is from outside to inside, you may actually be standing too close to the ball. In the correct posture, your upper arms should lightly touch your chest - and you should be in balance.

    Generally, simply squaring the swing path will also eliminate the problem of the open club face. But if you still have an open clubface – the P3ProSwing™ will tell you – then it’s time to try fixing number 2:

  2. Develop a square club face
    • Lighten your grip pressure
      A grip that’s too tight or tense will restrict motion and the natural squaring of the clubface.
    • Check your top handgrip
      The grip of the club should be held in the fingers of the top hand (left hand for a right handed golfer) so that the grip is under the pad of the top hand.
    • Make sure that the angle of your hands is correct
      Visualize a line extending from the “V” formed by the thumb and forefinger of each hand as you grip the club. That line should point to the back shoulder – the right one, if you’re a right-handed golfer.
    • Check your clubface at address
      The leading edge of your club should be perfectly square to the sensor lines on your P3pro before you swing. If you begin with the clubface open, you won’t be able to square it during the swing. This is a very common mistake, by the way… and the sensor lines on your P3ProSwing™ will help you ‘cheat’ your visualization while you learn!
    • Check your ball position relative to your stance
      Many golfers end up with an open clubface at impact because their ball position is slightly off. Moving the ball a little farther forward in your stance will normally eliminate an open clubface. For right handed golfers, your ball position should be slightly left of center with all of your clubs.
