  • Maintain your angles for consistently long drives

    Written by Nick Clemens on Wednesday, 28 April 2010

    Written by Rob Watts on Thursday, 04 March 2010

    A common cause of the slice is when the body reverse pivots – where the weight shifts on to the left foot (for a right-hander) during the backswing and the upper body tilts towards the target.
