Are you struggling with the most common problem faced by golfers? Of course I am talking about the dreaded slice. You know where you seem to make good contact but shortly after your ball takes flight it turns violently to the right (if you are right handed). Well here I am going to give you three tips to help you stop slicing the golf ball once and for all!
A slice is caused by excessive left to right spin being put on the golf ball, so with that said here are three tips to stop it:
1. First and foremost you should check your grip. Most players have a neutral or weak grip which can lead to a slice. This means that your left hand is more on top with only one or two knuckles showing, and the average player would be much better served to grip the callaway diablo edge irons in a little stronger position with three knuckles showing in order to produce more right to left spin, which produces a pretty draw.
2. often times the stance can cause a slice because your shoulders or feet are open to the target line. Make sure that you square your shoulders and keep your right elbow close to the side throughout the golf swing. You can practice this by putting a headcover underneath your right arm pit and make sure the cover does not fall out as you swing the diablo edge irons.
3. Another method to stop slicing the ball is to prevent the "over the top" move. This means that you are casting th club and trying to overpower the golf ball. As a result you swing across your body which produces the slice spin that you want to avoid. I suggest you get the feeling of starting your downswing with your hips going to the left and your arms simply dropping into position. This will help you hit the ball more consistent.
