Fix golf slice is a thought on many amateur golfers minds. Studies reveal over 80% of all amateur golfers slice the ball. There have been more training aids, drills and tips to fix the golf slice that I cant even begin to count.
If you hit a golf slice, have you taken lessons; bought any training aids, and done several drills only to still hit a slice? What a frustrating situation! Do you realize whats causing your golf slice?
A golf slice is caused by the clubface coming across the ball from outside the target line, creating side-spin on the ball. Upon first thought, this may seem like a mechanical issue. And it is but if you dig a little deeper, youll find its a physical issue.
You see your body dictates your ability to swing the club efficiently. If your body has physical limitations, your swing will not be mechanically sound and swing faults will appear.
In the golf swing there are many compensations for lack of proper mechanics. If you cant make a 90 degree shoulder turn on the backswing, youll do whatever it takes to feel like you are making a full turn.
A good example of this would be to rotate your hips beyond the desired 45 degrees to enable your body to make a full backswing. What this does is rob you of power. You have no torque built up in your core to unleash into the ball at impact.
The same thing with a golf slice.
A golf slice is caused by the upper body getting ahead of the lower body, creating an over-the-top move, which in turn results in your clubface slashing across the ball and creating side-spin. Here comes the banana ball!
Your first inclination will be to take a lesson to fix this. If that doesnt work, you might buy a training aid. If that doesnt work youll buy an offset driver to help eliminate your golf slice.
Does this sound familiar?
Now the real answer! Take a break on your lessons. Dont buy anymore training aids. And keep your normal driver in your bag.
You need to work on you core rotational flexibility to be able to initiate the downswing with your lower body first, to avoid the upper body getting ahead of it. Its that simple. The minute your able to separate the upper and lower body upon initial move down youll see that golf slice improve dramatically.
Doesnt that make sense?
Along with fixing your golf slice, youll add up to 30 yards to your drives. You will get more roll when the ball lands from a draw ball flight. A golf slice is a weak shot that does not penetrate the air for maximum distance.
All of my programs, dvds, and books focus on core rotational strength and flexibility which will improve your power output and eliminate swing faults. You will not experience compensations on the golf course anymore.
When you work on your machine, your golf swing takes care of itself! You will finally eliminate the thought, fix golf slice.
