Slice Killers!

Quick tips to help eliminate the dreaded banana ball once and for all

Ever wonder what causes a slice to curve? Either your hands don’t rotate enough and you hit the ball with an open face, or you have an out-to-inside swing path.

Why You Can’t…

(and how you can)

One of the great things about the game of golf is that, on occasion, all of us, even the highest handicapper, will hit a shot like a pro. It might be a well-struck drive, hitting a par-5 in two or holing out a bunker shot.

Slice No More

Say adi__s to the banana ball once and for all!

To draw the ball, the first thing you need to have is the right image. Begin by setting your sights on a spot to the right of your target. This is your starting line.
