Don't Fix A Golf Slice The Easy Way

Aug 17, 2007
There is an easy way to fix a golf slice, but it doesn't always work. Before we go into that let's have a look at what causes a slice. If you understand that then you will understand the theory behind the cures.

Don't Aim Left to Compensate for a Slice

Don't try a quick easy fix that you don't understand, or that in some way diminishes your game. Actions such as compensating by hitting out left, knowing that your slice will bring the ball back right, are simple cop-outs from doing a bit work to find out what is wrong. Not only that, but all it achieves is to reduce your length and could also turn what should be an easy run into a green into a nightmare trying to get over a number of traps.

Don't do it. Cure your slice at source, and if you understand what causes it, you might want to spend some time working on it. A slice is caused, for a right handed player, by spinning the ball clockwise with the club. This causes a drag differential between each side as the ball flies through the air, and eventually the ball starts to swing off to the right. A left handed player will put the opposite spin on. When the ball spins anti-clockwise it will turn out to the left. A right handed hooker does the same thing - the ball gets anti-clockwise spin and out it goes left.

So how Does the Spin get on the Ball?

The spin is imparted by the golf club as it strikes the ball at an angle. If it struck the ball straight on it would fly straight down the fairway without a waver, other than that imparted by the wind. The ball is struck at angle for one of two reasons. The first is that the club face reaches the ball before it has properly straightened out. Your swing might be straight, but not the club face. It is too open at the moment of strike.

To cure the golf slice you have to close the club face a bit. Try this on the range till can do it time and time again. Tighten your grip by holding it further round the cub anticlockwise. Not much. Try half an inch and see what happens. If it works, fine. If not, then the problem lies with the second reason: your swing, and you should get the opinion of your club professional.

The pros can usually sort out your slice: if anyone can fix a golf slice they can. They have seen plenty slices since everybody slices the ball now and again. Once you have fixed it, it may come back, but at least you will know how to keep it under control.
