Young slicer from South Africa

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all, my name is Heinrich or "Hein" for short. I am a 19 (soon to be 20) handicap and thought of joining here to make my game better. I'm a previous over-the-top swinger (I always used to think that I hit a draw but I instead hit a pull with a closed clubface). I am now struggling to hit straight shots and am hitting fades and slices. I started playing since I was 18 and am now 28 years old. I hope to meet you all soon on the forums! I'm the king of putting but the joker of driving :-)

Hi welcome to the site. This thread would be a great place to start to get rid of that slice, recommend taking a look at the Key #2 Weight Forward drills first.

Thanks mvmac, I will certainly look at it. I did notice a tendency with my last golf game that I fall back a bit when hitting the golf ball. This will be my starting point. I'm sure you will hear a lot from me in the future!

Hello!

 

My boyfriend is from SA (just outside Durban).  I'm anxious to golf there with him when we get a chance to spend some time together.  He's coming here (Oregon) next, so it may be awhile.

 

I'm VERY new to golfing, and joined to learn more and have a place to ask questions and get different perspectives.

Well this one place to ask questions and get different perspectives ... so welcome to the sand trap!  Oregon has some great places to golf.
