Video Golf Tip | Slice Cure: Left Shoulder

Hello, I am Glen Farnsworth, Master Instructor under Jim McLean at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa. Many of our students that come to our golf schools fight a slice. One of the reasons for this is that as they go through impact their left arm comes off their body and the elbow points towards the sky. We have a drill for you here today that will help you achieve a better release, thus helping you move the golf ball from right to left. Take an extra golf glove and place it under your left arm. As you go through impact make sure that the glove simply stays nice and connected to the body going through impact. This will help you to rotate your forearms correctly, thus closing the toe of the club over the heel. I will demonstrate here for you, and as you do it try to go nice and smooth to feel that. This will turn the ball from right to left. I hope this drill will help you to get rid of your slice.
