I normally struggle with a pretty mean slice with my driver. I've read as much as I could find on it and tried different techniques to try to fix this, but somehow keep ending up going back to the one fix that helps me most and that's ball placement. If I place the ball on the OUTSIDE of my left foot (i'm right handed) then I can about 90% of the time diminish the slice enough that it ends up just about where I want it to land. I don't understand how it works like that, but it does and I'm wondering if its just a cheap fix for something that I should be looking elsewhere in my setup for the problem. Does anyone else have to do this?
I've been a very casual golfer for the last oh.... 3 or 4 years or so and didn't really care about my score that much, just having fun. This ball placement has always been my "fix" for slices, but now I'd like to take golf a bit more serisouly (including lessons along the way if my wife, 2yr old, and newborn permit ). So that's pretty much why I'm asking.
