The only reason a golf ball slices is that the clubface is OPEN at impact. The primary reason the clubface returns open is due to a weak or unbalanced grip. The fix is a relatively simple one, but requires a sound understanding of the proper grip and a good amount of practice.
- The club should be placed in the fingers of both hands.
- Both V’s should point to the right shoulder.
- Grip pressure light but constant (4 out of 10)
- Split-Grip drill: Separate the hands (about 2 inches) on the club. Make regular swings. This drill promotes faster squaring of the clubface.
- Hinge and Re-Hinge drill: Swing the club back only to where your right arm is parallel to the ground and the shaft is vertical (hinged). Swing the club forward to the mirror image position (re-hinged). This drill promotes the proper movement of the hands, club, and arms.
