I've been Playing Golf for: 7 years
My current handicap index or average score is: 15.4
My typical ball flight is: Fade or slice
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: longer iron and driver SLICE
I'm struggling really hard with the driver this season. My 4-6 irons are very slicey as well, but I can hit 7-9 iron very straight without any issues. I've tried so many things, but the slice always seems to creep back into my swing on the longer clubs.
I've tried slowing down the swing, but it doesn't seem to help me for some reason. Technically speaking, I know it should, but it seems to produce the same results.
The one thing that really worked for me last season (very consistently) was addressing the ball normally and then moving the clubhead back about 6-8 inches behind the ball...I know, that's a long way back -- and it looked weird too....but if I would bottom out the swing about 6-8 inches behind the ball, it would result in an amazingly straight drive. I guess the extra space was giving the clubhead time to turn over....
So, for most of last season I was actually doing that drill on the course with good results...but this year it's totally backfiring on me! Almost everything off the tee with a driver is violently slicing :(
