Cure Your Slice


Slicing or coming over the top? Lee Scarbrow looks at what causes this common problem.


There are two key features in the swing you must focus on if you're slicing the ball.

The first is making sure your arms don't come "over the top". This occurs when your arms follow the outisde, rather than the inside track in the swing. This makes the arms cut across your body and causes the ball to fly out, hence the slice.

The second key feature is your feet. Make sure yur feet are square to the ball and your target. Splayed feet will also enhance the possibility of slicing. Keeping your feet square restricts the movement in your feet and legs and helps bring power, balance and good posture to the swing.
