Ok, went out a few more times to practice my driver swing, but still having the same slice issue. I don't have a quick slice but it almost seems like a nasty fade where the ball travels left and towards the end just starts moving to the right. My irons are fine and I have no issues with them; which is good at the moment...lol.
I tried these tips that I received from this post, and this is what my current results were. I teed up the ball with aligned with my left foot instep, I then tilted my upper body to the right this way I would swing up on the ball. This position felt good and it felt good hitting the ball but was still having slicing issues.
At first my swing plane was kind of flat and I was taking it lower across my body, and trying a nice wide swing since the driver is a longer club. I still ended up slicing, and I think it was because of the flatter swing plane it was harder for me to rotate my wrists and release the club head so it would square up at impact. I then tried changing my swing plane up higher, and closer to where I would be on my backswing for a 6 iron. This definitely helped and at the beginning I would end up hitting under the ball and popping it up, but there was no slice; which was good. Since I was popping it up with this higher driver swing plane path; I ended up moving the ball position slightly further up on my left foot and teeing the ball slightly lower. This definitely helped with the popping up issue, but then the slice started creeping back into place.
I then tried a couple swings with the same higher swing plane path, but trying to force myself to bow my wrist slightly on the backswing, and this definitely helped and I didn't slice the ball. So I'm guessing with my driver I have a tendacy to cup my wrist and I end up hitting the ball with a slightly open club face. However, its strange that I don't have this bow/cup wrist issue with my irons; maybe because my swing plane path is even more verticle than my driver swing plane path?
I try to use the same strong left hand grip with 2 knuckles showing for both irons and my driver. However, the only thing that seems to work to cure my slice with my current natural swing path without trying to force myself to bow my left wrist in the backswing is to basically grip my driver with my palm directly down with my left hand; showing a lot more than 2 knuckles on my left hand. This grip with my left hand seems like the way I can get my club face to square up with my driver.
However, I hate the fact that I have to hold my driver with my left hand with such a strong grip just to fix this slice. Does anyone have any other tips I could try doing to see if I could fix my slice with my current left hand strong grip showing 2 knuckles?
The only other thing I could think that I'm not doing righ is having a light grip during my swing to allow the club head to realease easier, but I tried a couple swing like this and it didn't seem to help much. One thing that I did notice and made me also not slice the ball is I would just do a half swing with the driver and I would end up hitting a low line drive shot but it would be perfectly straight; with no slice.
Thank you, again!
