This is my first season of seriously spending time playing golf.
Started out the season a horrible mess with most clubs. I am now to the point where I can hit my driver with consistency (although I still have a fade/small slice I can't seem to eliminate). I'm hitting my irons solid and the longer irons have a bit of fade. I am hitting fairway woods with very solid contact but with a bit of slice as well.
My real problem is my 3 hybrid - I bought it because everybody says it was the best thing since sliced bread. I can't hit it for poo. In the beginning I was constantly topping the ball - now I am getting solid contact but I am hitting it right off the face almost every time. The odd time that I do not push it, it starts off straight but slices badly to the right. I can't seem to hit it straight.
The hybrid is a TaylorMade RBZ STage 2 17 degree with stock Rocketfuel Stiff shaft.
I am trying to hit it like an iron (taking a small divot, etc.).
Based on the laws of ball flight, I am hitting it with the clubface open - why only this club?
I am planning on taking winter lessons on a golf simulator but still have some time to hit the range before the snow flies here...
EDIT : I know I do have an outside in swing and am working on correcting that. I have started placing my right foot back a few inches away from the target line. It has helped reducing the severity of my slice big time - but still not straight...
