Video Golf Tip | Five Minute Slice Cure

This is a golf segment for those of you that slice your ball. This is going to be an instant cure for doing that. First I want to show you how you slice and you can see the difference. Most slicers, the ball is too far forward in their stance which then opens their shoulders to their target line. In other words their shoulders are this way to the target line. What happens in the swing is that the arms follow the path of the shoulders and then the clubface stays open putting clockwise spin on the ball. The ball starts left and then turns to the right through the air, once in a while you hit a dead pull to the left. With a short iron, like and eight or a 9-iron, the same swing would hit a relatively straight golf ball because the club has more loft. So what happens is you get conflicting information, with an 8-iron you hit a shot the ball goes straight and then you take your driver and it goes way left and slices. It is the same swing it is just the loft of the club made the spin a little bit different. Here is the secret to this, you are going to get a golf tee, the target line is twelve o'clock to six o'clock. You are going to put the tee at eight o'clock, so it is going to be right about in here. When you take your set up you are going to move the ball back in your stance just a little bit so that it is going to be opposite your lead heel. Here is what you are going to do, your eyes are now going to track over to that tee. What happened then is that when I had my eyes over there my sternum is also pointing over there. Here is the trick. You are going to stay here with your eyes and your sternum but you are going to glance at the ball. What happens now is that my shoulder orientation is completely different. It is just the opposite so now I am going to hit a draw instead of a slice. That ball had a nice hook to it. Give this a try, it will change your slice instantly to a draw.
