Cannot cease slicing? Strive doing this throughout your takeaway

When you’re having bother with a slice, attempt altering your takeaway so you are not whipping the membership inside on the best way again.

You slice. So do lots of rec gamers. The repair is less complicated than you assume. 

There are two issues usually related to a left-to-right ball flight (for a righty). Often, it’s a too flat takeaway adopted by a weak lifting of the arms, then a “slappy” supply with the clubface pointing to the precise of your supposed purpose. A tee can remedy each. 

Tape one to the shaft of any membership with the tee parallel to the vanguard As you begin again, chorus from “whipping” the membership inside in order that the tee factors towards the sky and even behind you. Test at midway again that the tee remains to be pointing at your physique. That’s an incredible begin. 

Now, as a substitute of lifting your arms, proceed to rotate your higher physique to get the membership all the best way to the highest. 

As you make your approach down (slow-motion swings would assist right here), unwind whereas preserving the tee pointed at your physique and even barely forward of your face (above proper). This ensures that you simply’re not holding the clubface open. Get the tee proper and the face will sq. up for a power-rich centered strike with the face pointing at your goal. Works for irons, hybrids, driver — heck, each membership in your bag.
