How to Use Lead Tape to Fix Your Slice

By Jackson Lewis

Using lead tape to aid in correcting a slice or hooked golf shot has been a trick of professional golfers for a number of years. For most amateurs, using lead tape should be used with a tempered attitude because the cause of the slice is most likely because of significant swing flaws that lead tape will not fix over the long term. Golf clubs are designed with one optimal center of gravity position, with a number of models that are sold with adjustable weights to help shape and influence shots. The use of lead tape can help tweak the center of gravity and help fix a slice.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Add lead tape on the heel of the club. Start with one strip and increase to several strips until the desired shot effect is achieved.
Step 2
Create higher shots with less slice by adding lead tape to the lower side of the heel close to the ground when holding the club in the ready position.
Step 3
Make lower shots with less slice by adding lead tape on the upper portion of the heel close to the top portion you can see when holding the club in the ready position.
Step 4
Practice hitting at least 50 shots on the driving range after each change in the position of lead tape to ensure the desired effect is being achieved.
