The left shoulder only moves about six inches in the backswing. But as Today’s Golfer Elite teaching Pro Adrian Fryer explains in this golf video tip, the direction this small distance moves is crucial in causing or preventing the dreaded slice!
When we pull too hard on the left shoulder too quickly, this forces the club to come out and across the ball-to-target line causing that weak slice.
The key to stopping the slice is to delay the movement of the left shoulder. This encourages you to drop the hands and club down and release the club head, hopefully creating a nice draw shape and eliminate that slice for good!
