How to Fix Push-Slice with Your Driver
We have talked about how to fix a push-slice on the article, How to Fix the Push Slice and How to Fix a Push-Slice and a Hook with a Driver.
Today, I like to talk about other ways to fix your push-slice.
Focus on Your Right Knee
Let's focus on your right knee today to fix your push-slice.
When players hit push-slices, their body is moving forward too much during the downswing. This often happens when you try to hit it hard and end up losing your timing.
But if your body moves forward a lot during the downswing, you will lose the space and the time to swing your arms and hands freely to close the clubface at impact.
To fix push-slices, you will have to keep your body behind the ball until impact.
One of the ways to accomplish this is to focus on your right knee to keep your body back.
During your downswing, I like you to try to feel like your right knee isn't moving forward than its original position at address.
In other words, try to keep your right knee back until impact.
Players who are hitting push-slice with their driver are turning their body too much on the downswing. And if you turn your body too much on the downswing, you end up losing the enough space to swing your hands and arms.
So if you try not to move your right knee forward, you might feel like your body is very slow and not turning on the downswing.
But that's the sign that you have time to swing your hands and arms to close your clubface at impact.
To be exact, your right knee will move a little to the left at impact. But I like you to at least try not to move it forward for practice.
