The 3 Drills to Fix Your Slice
1) Right Foot Back Drill
Here is the first drill to fix your slice. Nick Faldo was using similar drill.
1. Set up to hit your 7 iron. Pull your right foot back about 10 inches. Position your ball in the center of your stance
2. Take the club back along your feet
3. Swing the club down from inside the target line and along your feet
4. Coming into impact, feel like your right palm is facing the ground
5. Keep your finish low
Nick Faldo said it's a good idea to stand on your right toe when hitting shots using this drill.
2) Tee the Ball Up
To fix your slice, you need a flatter swing plane. To fix your swing plane, I want you to do the following.
1. Using high tee, tee it up as high as you can
2. Hit shots with 6-iron
3. Try to sweep the ball off the tee. Don't scoop the ball
At first, you should try to hit it low. By trying to sweep the ball, you will be able to change your upright swing.
Also, hitting the ball above your feet will help make your swing plane flatter.
3) Aim Right
When you have a chance to go to the driving range next time, I want you to stand on the far left and hit balls.
Aim at the far right corner of the driving range and try to make the ball come back to the center.
