The slice is one of the biggest things an amateur or beginner golfer faces more than any other shot when they first start there golfing careers. I wanted to share some of my thoughts on what the best way(s) to tackle this super fun game that can be vary frustrating when trying to correct or eliminate that slice.
The first thing everybody talks about is that you must start the downswing from the ground up. This I believe is true but there is more to it than that. You must also understand the correct way to use the upper body as well as the lower. One of the biggest things that cause a slice is the shoulders and that most people rotate them too flat, they don't create enough secondary tilt and they don't get the lower body involved.
Looking at each one of these images you can see how AQ is using his hips (core) and shoulders correctly and that his left shoulder is moving back and up and the right is moving out and down. To get this motion in your swing start the downswing with both your hips and shoulders, what I mean by that is let them work together. The hips shift left and turn while the left shoulder moves back and up and the right moves down and out.
This is just what I believe is the best way to look at the swing and how to get the upper and lower body working correctly to hit the ball with better contact and eliminate that slice.
