Put your change in your left pocket. Go on, do it. Now, tie your left shoe in a double knot. Right now, do it! Turn the hat backwards. Turn your hat around. Do it, Roy! Take this tee and stick it behind your left ear. Good. Take this ball and hit it up the fairway.
Seriously though, post a video of your swing in the member swings section so some of the more knowledgeable people here can see where you're going wrong.
Truzz22 you sound like me when I play at golf. I'm left handed. My drives barely go 200 yards (more like 170-185). My 6 iron goes 150 when I hit it properly. I haven't had a lesson. (Yet). And I am predisposed to slice. While a slice of pizza or pie or cake is awesome, it's not what I want in my attempts at golf.
I tamed my slice by doing 3 things.
#1. Adjusting my grip. Mvmac started a thread on proper grip and I followed the tips in there and my slice straightened out... mostly.
#2. I moved closer to the ball... when I swing I try to keep my arms touching my chest... this also helped tame my slice... mostly.
#3. I slowed my backswing and downswing and don't try to swing out of my shoes on the downswing. I'll try to work out getting some hip turn at the driving range because I'm mostly an arm swinger at the moment.
For the most part, this has straightened out my slice... now I'm able to play a slight fade... that usually lands just to the left of the center of the fairway. My drives may not go far but they're straighter than they used to be.
Now if only I could hit my long irons consistently and putt better, I'd be in great shape to break 100...
