Video Golf Tip | Slicing Drill for Juniors

Here is a tip for you juniors that are having a problem slicing the ball. Usually when they come to me they are slicing the ball with the big club, the driver. Why? Because it is the longest club in the bag and has the furthest distance to travel. Parents, you can help your kids out with this problem. First of all, what causes a slice? A slice is caused once the club goes back it is thrown from over the top, it comes across the ball putting side spin on the ball. Notice I said across the ball. Whenever you are coming across the ball with a club that does not have much loft in it you are going to get sidespin. In this case here, the further you go to the left the more the ball is going to the right and you are going to get a slice. So, how do I fix that? If you parents want to work together with you kids all you have to do is be brave enough to stand out in front of them. First you tell your son of your daughter to make sure that they do not let go of the club and you do not want to see them hitting the ground when they swing the club. Here is what the drill is. Start at position one, club on the ground, position two is the top of the swing. Once you get to the top of the swing you can control where you go with that club when you stop at the top of the swing. You can go over the top, you can come back down from back inside or you can go straight. So really what we are looking for is I want them to take the club, once they have stopped up at the top of their swing, just concentrate on taking the club straight down the target line and straight towards their parents. If they do that they have the clubhead traveling straight down the target line instead of across the ball. Now if you are standing right in front of them you can see exactly where that clubhead is going and by working together the two of you can help your son or daughter fix that slice.

Causes of Heel Shots Heel shots are caused because you either move the center of your plane out towards the ball during your swing or you start too close to the ball at address
Putting: Seeing the Line Look up and down at least twice to burn an impression of the line to the target in your mind
Stability & Balance In The Swing If you tend to come up out of your stance and hit thin shots you can not only fix that but also increase your clubhead speed with this easy drill using a block of wood to place your toes on
