If you’ve been looking for a permanent cure for your golf slice problem it’s your lucky day. Why? Because I’m going to give you THE formula I’ve used to cure literally thousands of golfer’s slice problems from all around the world. And so with that being said, here are the 4 things you absolutely must do to fix your golf slice for good….
1. Setup for a draw
2. Swing from the inside so the ball starts to the right (for a right handed golfer) of your final target
3. Contact the ball with a slightly closed clubface
4. Have equipment that encourages you to draw the ball
Now that list of 4 things is generally the opposite of what every golfer does to hit a slice. For example, when a right handed golfer suffers from a slicing problem they generally aim to the left to allow for a slice — which just makes it worse, doesn’t it?
Now the absolute quickest possible way to fix your slice is to do the exact opposite of what you’re currently doing. So that means you have to setup for a hook. Then you need to try and swing a lot from the inside and release your hands a lot through impact so you contact the ball with a slightly closed clubface. And finally, you need equipment that helps you to hit a draw/hook.
If you did all of these things you could fix your slice tomorrow.
Seriously! It would happen that fast.
But here’s the problem — because it would feel so strange for you to do all of these things at the same time you would barely hit the golf ball .at least for a few days.
But golfers don’t like change. The slicing habit you have now took you a long time to create. And if you slowly try to fix it then equally it will take you a long time to fix it — if you fix it at all.
Now I assume you want to fix your slice sooner rather than later. So please believe me when I say that the quickest way to fix your slice problem is to not worry about your ball striking results for a few days or even a couple of weeks. Instead simply exaggerate the reverse of what you do to hit a slice. And if you’re like most of my students who do this, after a few days you’ll be hitting the ball straight!
If you exaggerate the opposite of what you do to hit a slice you’ll eventually hit the ball straight — not hook it. I know that sounds weird but that’s just how the golf swing works. Because when you swing a golf club, what you think you’re doing and what is actually happening are often two totally different things.
Now when you’re making changes to your golf swing to fix your slice you’ve got to work on one thing at a time. And the best place to start is with the setup. You need to setup the opposite of what you’re currently doing. So adjust your grip so it’s strong, align yourself to the right of your final target, position the ball in the middle of your stance etc., etc.
This will be tough to do but if you REALLY want to fix your slice you’ll do it.
Once you’ve done that you then want to exaggerate swinging from the inside. Then you’ve got to work on releasing your hands through impact so you contact the ball with a slightly closed clubface. Finally, if your equipment is promoting a slice rather than a draw then you must get equipment that encourages you to hit a draw/hook.
So that’s the proven formula you need to follow to fix your slice. And remember, to get the fastest results you must exaggerate the opposite of what you’re currently doing to hit your slice. To make a start I recommend you change your grip to make it stronger, because I know of golfers that have just done that and fixed their golf slice. So start with making changes to your setup and then progress through the rest of this proven formula after that.
