Swing Plane Problems
85 percent of the amateurs slice the ball but very few Tour players do this. And basically the reason is that pro players square the clubface at impact by swinging the club at a flatter plane. The two scenarios where slicing can happen is when you do a steep downswing leading to an outside-in swing and or you hit the fall open face at impact.
To have more control on slicing try to practice in a flatter swing plane by hovering the clubhead about a foot from the ground. This will enable more arm rotation and creates more clubface rotation. In effect, doing this more will drive a straighter swing by making the face square at impact. We routinely help people cure their slice. If you need your slice cured, please give us a call
No Pre-Shot Routine
Developing a routine is very important. Most of our students do NOT have a great routine to follow. The best golfers play a shot the same way as they happen before when facing the same scenario. Here are some examples:
- Establishing a target line. Staying behind the ball and drawing a target line between the ball and the target is strategic. Picking an intermediate spot about four feet from the ball and aligning the clubface and body lines to it is also a helpful preparation for a swing.
- Grip Assembly. Preparing your grip and addressing the ball from the side prepares you for the swing. The grip assembly is important so that you won’t have to twitch over the ball. As always advised, you have to aim the clubface to the target and position your feet consequently.
- Breathe. Breathing will help you focus. Focus on the primary target and make a confident swing.
No Visualization Of What To do With The Shot
When teeing, consider all the troubles and OB on the fairway; if so, you have tee where the trouble is on. By teeing on the side where the trouble is on, you can actually maneuver the ball in such fashion that your back faces the trouble. By looking down the fairway, you can barely see the trouble. Thus, by eliminating or ignoring the trouble you can actually make a confident swing.
