This is how I learned to hit wedges, not my driver. I am dialed in from 100 yards and in.I think next time I hit the range I am going to try the towel trick. Where you keep a towel tucked to your body with your right elbow and keep it there for the life of the swing. I think that's what business lawyer was suggesting with his latter recommendation. Thanks!
LOL. Golf is incredibly difficult to do well if you don't have good fine motor skills. My problem is not, however, being able to listen to and understand conceptually what a golf pro tells me. My problem is using that knowledge to actually fix my swing.
In today's Play Smart, we're taking a closer look at Jordan Spieth's breakthrough swing move, and why slicers should try it, too.golf.com
Pics or it didn't happen...I would also focus on squeezing my tits together with my arms.
It's an old-school method for correcting an outside-in (aka over-the-top) swing, which is usually the cause for consistent slices among casual golfers.Never even heard of that, and am sure I couldn't do it.
I've you've ever played baseball, think of trying to line the ball to right center. To do that, the part of the bat that you hit the ball with can't get outside of where you'll eventually make contact, and then work it's way back. You have to hold back the contact part of the back/club, and feel like you're going inside out rather than outside in.
Obviously everyone's swing is different, and your problem could be different, but I'd start by going to the range and focus on taking the ball up the middle or to right center.
Lots of good stuff here Jake not much I can add. The one thing that seems consistent with most that slice is where they start the takeaway. Be sure not to be too steep when taking the driver back it will cause you to bring the club pretty much outside in and create that slice affect. Steep Is when you bring the club up immediately on the take back. Think about keeping the club on the ground as you begin the take away as long as you can, or as long as you can keep that towel under your arm.
Another key point that I’ve found to work is have a pre-round cocktail and a couple a side to relax the mind. Lol...good luck!!
Things I've learned over time. A pre-round screwdrivers does wonders for loosening up before the first tee. I have learned to stay away from caffeine and from hard liquor once the round starts. Macro light beers during the round.
I line up my drive and the contact feels great. Good initial aim and then...into the rough/trees/fairway of the hole on the right. I slice nearly every time I drive the ball. There's myriad resources online for fixing this problem but everyone seems to have their own miracle fix. Just wondering if any Yarders(@mauconnfan?) have any tried and true methods they use to get a straight drive. I'm too much of a casual golfer to hire a swing coach or spend money trying to fix it. For now I'm relegated to hitting irons off the tee because then at least I hit the fairway I'm aiming for. I realize without seeing my swing it's hard to diagnose what I'm doing wrong but any help is appreciated. FORE!(> 1)
A quick puff on a vape loaded with super silver haze has the same effect for me.
