Hi, it's Jim Empey for Livestrong.com. I'm here at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Boise, Idaho, and the reason I'm here today is to talk about curing a slice and I want to give you 4 ways today to help cure a slice which is probably the most debilitating shot in the game and of course we're defining a slice as a shot that curves to the right for a right handed player. The reason balls curve to the right is that at impact the club face is open. Our job is figure out how to help your club face square up more efficiently, more repetitiously, so that your shots have less tendency to curve right. Often times a slice is manageable with a short club but by the time we get to a driver the slice, the slice spin and the curve is accentuated by the length of the club and the lack of loft on the face of the driver. So 4 things we need to do to get rid of your slice. Number 1 is chances are we got to turn your left hand grip to a more closed face position and what I mean by that is if your left thumb is on the top of the handle and you look down and can only see one knuckle that's essentially an open faced position for your grip. We got to turn that left hand more to the right on the handle so that the left thumb is on the right center of the handle and so that you can see 2 or 3 knuckles on the outside of your left hand. Once you've done that your right palm is just gonna lay over your left thumb. Turning your grip that direction clockwise on the handle is gonna help facilitate the clubface releasing in a timely way and squaring up at the moment of impact. That's probably the number 1 thing we can do to cure your slice. Second thing we can do is lower the tension level in your arms and shoulders. The more tension you have in your arms the more you're likely to swing forward and hold the face open through impact. Take a couple of deep breaths before you step to hit. Relax the tension in your arms and shoulders and the club has a much better opportunity to freely release and not only square up but generate good speed. Third thing we're gonna do to get rid of your slice is we're gonna make sure that your backswing works in a circle. Often times a swing that works too vertically where the player is trying to swing straight back, often times this vertical path produces a steep angle in the forward swing and that doesn't allow the face to square. So lets make sure in your backswing that the club swinging around in a circle so that at the top of the backswing the club's essentially over your right shoulder not over your right ear. Final thing we're gonna do to cure your slice is we're gonna rehearse making a forward swing that allows the club face to turn toe up and we're gonna swing slowly at the bottom of the swing so that we can see and feel the club face squaring in impact and continuing to turn toe up in the forward swing. The more you can rehearse that the more you can feel the club face working dynamically at the bottom of the swing in this sort of square face fashion the better chance you have to learn it effectively and produce that sort of swing when you go play. Try those 4 things and you'll get rid of your slice. Thanks.
