Video Golf Tip | The Only Reason For A Slice
By Tim Cusick

Upwards to 90 percent of the people that play the game of golf have a tendency to slice when they have a driver in their hand. To remember there is only one reason why you slice the golf ball and that reason is because the clubface is open at impact when you make contact or it is in the process of opening. There are characteristics of why people slice, such as a weak grip, or an open clubface at the top of the backswing, a cupped left hand, a swing that is too upright. Those are all characteristics of why people might slice, but the only main reason is because the back of the left hand has not squared up. If you can get the back of your left hand to square up at impact and continue rotating through on your follow through it will minimize your slice and you will find that you start drawing the golf ball real soon.
