How to Adjust Your Golf Swing Angle for the Perfect Shot

Align Your Body for a Better Golf Swing

One of the characteristics of someone that slices is they have a tendency to swing the club more out and down to the left when you do that you tend to lose the trajectory of your shot because you are swinging more down and to the left and you are coming across the golf ball.

  • If you want to try to change that motion your goal would be to try to stay back with your upper body in the backswing and angle your downswing more from the inside and up to the right.
  • When your body stays back and you angle your swing more to the right you have a tendency to hit more of the back of the golf ball.
  • As the club keeps moving up to the right that is what helps put the golf ball up in the air.
  • Your body staying turned back gives you a better chance to let the club release so that you can eliminate that slice and hit more of a higher draw shot.

So the next time you find yourself coming over the top and losing the trajectory of your shot try to stay turned back with your body and let the club angle more up to the right. That will help put the ball up in the air and take that slice away.
