Sudden slice

2 posts in this topic


I'm a 17 year old 9-10 handicap golfer. I played last sunday beautifully, but when i played 9 today i was pushing or slicing nearly every shot. i havent really sliced in over a year and a half. Anyone ever experienced this or have any advice? (p.s. i made this account about two years ago hence the name chronicslicer)

    • Curious.....So...Why is a slice so easy to hit?
      By LagShaft · Posted
      I certainly can't disagree I guess my point was more to the benefits of subtle changes and an educated eye.

      That was it!  Thanks, +Missouri Swede and +NewtoGolf.     Now to find how to reference someone by name here...   Also, I need to be sure to revisit this thread in a few months when I'm used to the new software.
    • Weight distribution
      By mvmac · Posted
      I'd suggest having the weight more even between the toes and the heel. Too many golfers get the weight back on the heels and it effects their ability to make a good pivot. Check this thread out. Good Golf Posture (How to Address the Golf Ball) Also, Rose doesn't look back on his heels here.

      I've been browsing around and looking at many professional golfers on youtube. I came across one of Justin Rose's videos and I fell in love with his simple, smooth swing. I was watching a swing analysis of Justin Rose and during this video he talked about how Rose would lean back slightly into his heel before beginning his take back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh6RbcRXLDs I was wondering if it would be a good thing for me to consider putting into my swing. I have a rather long neck and I feel like I gain a lot more stability when slightly leaning back as Justin Rose did. Any thoughts?
