I've been struggling with a slice lately. It's a straight fade that fades too much. Knowing this, I decided on the course (through my limited understanding of golf) that the main culprit is my swing path.
To fix this, I closed my stance slightly. Basically, I would line up as I would normally do, then just drop my right foot back a couple of inches, keeping my clubface orientation the same, and swing. I figured that if I was swinging out-to-in with my feet neutral, closing my stance would rotate my arc enough to be more in-square-in.
The result was straighter shots. I would describe them as straight with a slight (a few yards) fade. I even hit a few draws, which I haven't done in a while. The other thing I noticed was that this allowed me to straighten my right knee more easily (I'm pretty flexible, so my right knee stays fairly flexed at the top of my backswing).
I'm not saying this is a miracle cure, because I still mishit plenty of shots, but the ones I flushed were great, and the ones I hit marginally well were significantly better than earlier in the round.
I'm basically hitting pulls, right? I just want to know if this is something that I should work on and incorporate into my swing, or is this just a Band-Aid and I should really be focusing on fixing my swing path?
