Golf Tips - Slicing: What Causes It & How To Correct It

By Thomas Tetrault, PGA Pro

Four of the main causes of slicing are:


If your grip is too tight your hands can't rotate at impact, causing face to be open. So release the grip. If your shoulders don't turn and your weight doesn't shift to the right at top of swing, your body will be ahead of the ball and the club will open at impact. Taking club outside at takeaway will cause outside-in swing plane, causing ball to spin in slicing manner.

Make sure club is moving inside at takeaway to help prevent slice. Aiming left at address will not cure slice - it will only cause more left-to-right spin. *

Baseball Cross Training Mike started his daughter out playing softball before she moved on to golf. The baseball swing is identical to the one-plane golf swing; the only difference is that in golf the strike zone is on the ground where your ball is.
Hip Tightness: Trunk Stretch Stretch out your hips and torso by getting on your knees and extending your arms up and to the sides, improving your flexibility and backswing
Golf Posture and Stance Your posture is determined by your arm swing. If you swing up and down on a two plane swing then you should stand more upright. If you swing your arms around on a one plane swing then stand more bent over on the balls of your feet.
