Video Golf Tip | Vision Focus: Slice Cure
By Katherine Marren

Most students come to the lesson tee looking to reduce their slice and add distance to their drive. Here is a great way you can use your eyes and your vision to get the ball in the middle of the fairway and add some distance. I am going to set up to the golf ball and I have placed a business card about five or six inches behind the ball. By using my vision to look at the card it allows my spine to tilt to the right. That is going to allow me as I swing back to get a nice full turn and by keeping my eyes five or six inches behind the ball as I swing down the club swings down on a much more inside path which allows me to make much more solid contact and release my hands. I am going to get a lot more distance and I am going to reduce that slice on the golf ball, let's give it a try. Using your vision to get rid of your slice is an easy drill to try on the range. I have placed a business card on the ground so that you can see that I am focused a good four or five inches behind the ball. You can use a ball marker and then eventually just remember to look at a spot behind the ball.

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
