Video Golf Tip | Slicing: Open Clubface

Let’s talk about slicing. Now the key to curing your slice is fixing the clubface. A slice comes from an open clubface. We need to take a look at your grip first to control that clubface. That means your top hand, for me as a right-hander my left hand, needs to be turned over so that I can see at least two knuckles, maybe three, on my left hand. That rotates my left forearm over, which allows me to rotate it back the other way when I am going through. When I do that move it closes the clubface during the swing. Now to guarantee that you can draw the golf ball, when you go out to the range first start with the clubface closed, in other words, turn that face in. Then take your grip making sure that you can see two or three knuckles on your left hand. When you put your golf club down on the ground it will be very closed compared to your target line. From there you can slightly close your stance, make sure you maintain that closed clubface and the stronger grip, and hit some golf shots in this fashion. You will learn to curve the ball right to left and then gradually work that clubface back to a square starting position once you become used to hitting the inside-out draw.
