Video Golf Tip | Slice Cure: Forearms
By John Webster

Hello name is John Webster, Master Instructors for Jim McLean here at the Doral Resort and Spa. Many of our students come in with the problem of slicing the golf ball. Here are a few key tips to help you get rid of that slice. First is to understand the clubface. It needs to close in order to get the ball to turn from right to left. First thing you should do is check to make sure your left hand is turned far enough over the golf club to help promote the rotation of the clubface. Just with your left hand, do this a few times, feeling your left forearm rotate almost as if your watch was turned upside down on your wrist. Let that left arm relax because tension will be a killer. Now add your right hand to the sequence. Splitting it just a little from the left, still feeling that rotation. You will notice that my right forearm is turning over my left, helping to promote the closing of the clubface. As you step into the shot, try to take this feeling with you.

Better Delivery Position for a More Powerful Swing The delivery position of the swing is when the club shaft is parallel to the ground, at which point the right elbow and knee should have kicked in towards the center of your stance
Analyze Your Impact The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact
Backswing: Arm Movement In the backswing the arms do not move back but rather hinge upwards
