Tip no. 10 - The Slice
with Pachesham Golf Academy

The slice - a curly, weak 'banana' shot - is the classic fault of the majority of mid to high handicap golfers. And the more you slice, the further left you aim to compensate, and the more you slice! Break out of that vicious circle with these simple pointers.

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

The Slice classically starts left of the target but finishes right of the target.

It is caused by the swing path being 'out to in', a weak grip and the clubface being open at impact.
To cure the slice: Swing on a more 'in to out' swing path (a feeling of the club swinging more around you and into the ball). Use a slightly stronger grip (turn your hands to the right) with the clubface square at impact.
