Video Golf Tip | Cure For Slice Shots: Early Release

One of the reasons that people slice is that as their coming down to impact, they tend to drag their hands too far in front of the clubhead, releasing the head of the club too late to square the face up, so that when they make contact the face of the club is pointing to the right making the ball go low and to the right. The correct impact position would be to come in to where there is a straight line all the way down from the left shoulder to the head of the club. To help you get this earlier release position, I’ve got a drill for you. What I’d like for you to do, is I’d like for you to tee up the ball and then using a middle iron or a short iron, like a 7-iron to a 5-iron. I’d like for you to put a tee about two feet behind the ball, another tee about two feet in front of the ball on your target line. Then taking another tee, I would like to see you put it into the butt of the club [the hole in the grip]. Then make some swings clipping this ball off of the tee by making half a backswing, trying to point the tee in the grip at the tee behind the ball. Release the head of the club as early as possible and try to point the tee in the grip at the tee that’s in front of the ball. Using this tee to re-tee drill will help you get an earlier release and end to those slicing problems.
