Fourth place was the A severe slice can be eliminated Welcome back to the seventh installment of the Pro's Corner. Today we are going to discuss the dreaded slice. What is a slice, you ask? Well, we use the term slice to describe a golf shot that curves severely from left to right for a right-handed golfer or right to left for a left-handed golfer. Needless to say, anytime you use the word severe4n front of the word curve it is something serious. So what causes a slice? The most basic description of what causes a slice is the following: A common Slice is caused by a swing path that is traveling on an outside to inside path with an open clubface: There are other ways to hit a slice, but for the purpose of this article we will stick with the most popular fault found by most golf professionals. How can you fix a slice? If I had a sure fire way to fix a slice I would probably be a millionaire. Seeing as I am not a millionaire, let me instead provide you with some of my favorite drills to help reduce or eliminate your slice. The first drill is called "split hands." This drill's main focus is on rotation of the hands and it addresses the open clubface portion of what causes a slice. To do this drill; I want you to grab the golf club and set up like you are ready to make a swing. Now take your low hand and move it down the shaft to the end of the grip. You should now have one hand at the top of the grip and one at the bottom of the grip, thus the "split hands." Now make a few swings. What you will notice is your low hand is now forced to rotate over your top hand. This is the club rotation that we want in order to __ I PRO'S CORNER_ RONNIE THEOBALD square the clubface. Make this swing about five times and then put your hands back and hit a shot. If you do this drill often it will greatly reduce, if not eliminate, your slice. The second drill is called "right foot back." This drill's main focus is swing path and it addresses the outside to inside swing path portion of what causes a slice. To do this drill, simply take your normal stance and setup then drop your right foot back. You should now feel like your stance is closed and aiming you off to the right. Your next step is to make a swing. What you should feel is a swing path that is going with your body. If you make your normal outside to inside swing it will feel very awkward because of the closed stance we created with the "right foot back." Do this drill and learn to swing with your body rather than against it and your slice will disappear. I want to thank you for reading another edition of the Pro's Corner. For more information on fLxing your slice please visit your local PGA professional and let's start hitting the ball long and straight. See you next week.
