Slice No More!

Destroy the banana ball in 4 easy steps

Beating the slice once and for all is a goal that can be accomplished by almost any golfer, provided the right approach is taken. In my four-step system, there are no quick fixes—just sound instruction that focuses on key slice-causing elements and methods for eliminating them from the golf swing. In step one, you’ll learn to analyze your divots and figure out if your slice is the result of a bad path or a faulty clubface angle, or both. Step two will tell you how to determine what type of downswing you have and what powers it. In step three, the question of proper grip and how to match it to your downswing type is addressed, and in step four, you’ll learn to match your position at the top with the right transitional move toward the ball and impact.

Glove Secrets

Slicing

The first fundamental I teach every new student is how to properly hold the club because good golf swings start with good grips. Your hands are your only connection to the club, thus making them the primary mover of the shaft and controller of the clubface. If you hold the club incorrectly, you’re immediately at a disadvantage and more likely to make compensations in your swing.

The Replacements

No longer considered a novelty, the hybrid club has developed a new reputation as the go-to shotmaker from the fairway, the rough and, believe it or not, around the green.

If you’re supposed to hit down on the ball with your irons and slightly up on the ball with your woods, what in the world do you do with a hybrid club?

Match your swing to your body type for maximum performance

Not all athletes or golfers have an extreme body type. Instead, a great

number of players fall into the “in-between” category, meaning they

have a relatively “average” build with a solid combination of

flexibility and strength. If you have this type of body, you need to

develop a swing that takes advantage of both attributes, not just one

or the other. This body type is best suited to a Leverage swing.
