Video Golf Tip | One-Plane Slice Fix

If you are tired of slicing it is time to try something new. In all probability your swing, I have my trusty hula hoop here again, your swing looks too much like a ferris wheel, it is going to straight back and too straight through and that makes the clubface open as it goes through the golf ball. In all probability you are swinging from the outside as well just to make a playable golf shot. If you want to get rid of that slice forever it might be time to try some one-plane swing motions. That means swinging your arms a little bit more around you, rather than up and down in front of you. If I took my golf club and swung it around back here behind me, number one my swing would be shorter, my right elbow would be behind me, but I want you to notice the clubface as I swing my arms around my body. The face has a closing motion as it goes through without any manipulation on my part. So swing the club around you and bend from the hips to get down to the golf ball. Let the right arm go behind on the backswing, left arm behind on the through-swing. That will help you square the clubface up and probably hit you a draw on the first try. Enjoy.

Reverse Pivot Cure Practice swinging with your front foot turned out almost to the target which will stop you from shifting your weight to your front foot on the backswing
Cure For Heel Shots: Club Rotation When the clubface rotates the heel becomes the leading edge of the club and makes contact first so practice making dollar bill divots to eliminate that clubface rotation
