Playing Golf – Simples Secrets And Techniques To Cure The Slice

By Sherri Sutton

The shot that starts off slightly to the left then swerves to the right in the air is called the slice. Most beginners have this common fault and it tends to be very frustrating to any golfer. The slice sends the ball deep into the rough and it’s very uncontrollable. The slice is even more common than another golfer’s mistake called the hook, to which the ball does the opposite through the air.

Secrets to cure the slice

To cure the slice, you first need to make sure your body alignment is correct which means that your shoulder, chest, hips and feet are parallel to each other and to the ball to pin line. Unless your body is properly aligned and is aiming too far to the left, then the upper body won’t be able to rotate properly. As the impact takes place, the club will be moving from the outside to the inside of the ball instead of hitting through the ball, and this called and out to in swing. Therefore, this side spin will result to the uncontrollable slice.

The positioning of the ball in the stance also plays a role if you want to get a good shot. This can happen if the ball is placed too far forward in the stance.

If the club face is no longer square on at impact with the ball, then slicing of the ball can still occur. That’s because the club face has come past square and moves in from the ball to pin line, thus generating side spin which in turn causes the ball to slice.

A guide for ideal ball placement

Keep in mind that when it comes to long irons, place the ball inline with the inside of your left heel, centre of the stance if it’s short iron, then between two positions mentioned above for medium irons.

Check your posture as weight distribution can also affect your game. Be wary of your weight distribution as it can also encourage slice if your weight is too far forward.

You can also try to strengthen your grip. To reduce the affect of slicing, try to move your hands slightly clockwise around the club and lighten the pressure.
