Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

On-Course Golf Tip-Anti-Slice Tip

A slice (when the ball curves left to right for a right-handed golfer), in golf,  is one of the most common swing ailments.   The slice most commonly occurs when the clubface is open relative to the swing path and/or when the swing follows an “out to in” or “over the top” swing path.  The shoulders are open to the target line at the moment of impact as in the photo to the far left.

Many times a slicer opens up the shoulders too quickly on the downswing causing the clubhead to tip over and cut across the intended target line.  This path, of ‘outside to in’, combined with an open clubface at impact will cause the ball to spin from left to right.

To counter this move, try hitting some shots with a closed stance.

Anti-Slice Drill-

  1. Place a club or alignment stick on the ground to represent your target line.
  2. Set up to hit a normal shot where your stance is ‘square’ to the target line as in the middle photo.
  3. Slide your right foot back, so that the toe of the right foot is in line with the heel of the left foot (for the right-handed golfer), thus closing your stance, as in the far right photo.
  4. Swing normally and hit a shot.

Closing your stance will do a couple of things:

  1. It will help you create a more powerful turn.
  2. A closed stance will help the club path to stay more on line or even a little inside the line so that you can rotate the clubface through impact and hit a shot with more ‘right to left’ spin.
