Focus Behind the Golf Ball to Fix Your Slice

Increase Distance and Fix Your Slice

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.

Get a Full Turn on Your Backswing

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.
