Almost any time you pick up a golf magazine or here some golf instructor on television you are swamped with some new way to fix a slice.
Why is it then that none of the so-called fix a slice ideas work for the average recreational or week-end golfer?
They do not work because none of these so-called slice fixes address the reason why golfers slice or any meaningful remedy to eliminate a slice golf shot.
There are times that a slice golf shot is needed such as to curve the ball around some obstacle but hitting a golf ball straight is typically the preferred ball flight.
The reason why golfers slice begins with the initial golf grip. The instant you assume either an overlapping, interlocking or baseball type of grip your clubface rotates to an effective open alignment and to an effective out-to-in swing path. This creates the classic slice ball flight alignment.
If there is no body movement between the time the club is initially gripped and the time the clubface contacts the ball at impact an open clubface will contact the ball on an out-to-in swing path and, assuming enough club head speed, the ball will slice.
On the other hand, if there is some body movement between the time the grip is assumed and when the backswing begins the clubface may rotate through a series of different alignments and possibly return to its original and inherent slice alignment that was created at the time the grip was initially formed.
Even assuming a square clubface alignment at final address of the ball—which is exceedingly rare– if the club is swung slightly to the inside of its established swing path during the backswing it will rotate to an open alignment and the clubface will contact the ball with an open alignment on an out-to-in path across the shoulders at impact to produce a slice golf shot.
In any such case, the golf method to correct a slice is not to attempt to manipulate the clubface during the golf swing to square the clubface to the ball at impact, as most conventional instructors coach. Rather, the way to eliminate a slice for good is to convert a slice alignment to a square alignment immediately after assuming a grip of the club. Then you will be able to hit straight golf shots instead of slices.
After more than ten years of research and thousands of experiments I have been able to design, develop and perfect more than 100 techniques to convert a slice alignment to a square alignment during or immediately after gripping a club and then lock-in the square alignment that will remain locked-in for the remainder of the setup proceedings as well as during the golf swing. This is the only sure way to fix a slice for good.
