Video Golf Tip | Slicing: Downswing

One of the key components to stopping slicing is how you start the downswing. Now from the top of the golf swing we want to start from the ground up, not from the top down. Most amateurs will make the mistake of either throwing the club too early or rotating their shoulders too quickly. The correct sequence is from the lower half of your body, from the hips down, starting the downswing. So the correct sequence of motion is the little move, or little shift of the lower body, over to the left foot, then the turn and then the swing, which will allow you to hit from the inside. I am going to give you a little tip on how you can monitor this. Take your golf club and put it right across your hip line. When you make your turn, your golf club will point out to the right, if you thought of a baseball diamond, it would point out toward first base. Now here is the key move, when you start down, first bump the shaft out towards first base. Do not allow the first move to be back to second base or even worse to third base. Make the little move out to right field or first base, then turn through to the finish. Practice that little move to improve the sequence of your body motions.
