Hi guys,

I had been having issues with my 6 iron and driver slicing ( 3, 4, and 5 are hybrids that I don't slice ).

Today I went to the range again to work on it and I got rid of it entirely by swinging like I am drawing the ball ( although it does draw, only about 5 yards of draw ). Now, what I am trying to find out is, is this a normal swing plane? Because I am swinging like a draw, but using a little less wrist on impact , and when I do turn my wrists it draws even further.....or is this just counter productive? And should I stop doing this?

My ball flight height has also increased substantially doing this.

I am going to go to a pro and get a video in the next month or so anyway, but does this sound right?

Thanks!

First, do you set up any clubs on the ground so you can know were your aiming. I find that alot of people just hit balls and don't know that there body is aimed 20 yards left or right of target (i will raise my hand as a victum of this).

to men you can't diagnos a problem with out knowing if your aligned right. But if i am right, i am still trying to get the hang of this. The slice is were the clubface is open compared to the swing path. So most people slice because there clubface is pointing down the target line, but there swing path is over the top. Now, if you close your swing path more, then your going to start pulling the ball because your clubface is now pointing left and there is less angle between the club face and the swing path.

So, thats why i need to know if your alignment is right. If your aiming left and your swing path is square to your aiming, then its all a matter about getting your alignment right and then squaring up the clubface. But if your aiming square and swinging over the top, then you will have some nasty pull shots on you.

If your comming over the top, the biggest cause is taking the club back to far inside and your body over corrects and over the top move. So i would go see the Pro, hopefully he has some video camera were you can look at your swing.

If the clubface is down the target line for this shot it would end in a straight fade not a pull

    • Leaving the reactionaries aside, I think I'm in the minority. I love the name but really don't like the logo. I love the name because it makes me think of a sort of mystical king's guard. Like, never f*** with us. It's always a mistake. The logo strikes me as too Jesus-y.
    • The problem with your argument is the fact that “Indian” is not a tribe. Rather, it’s an inaccurate and derogatory term because the folks historically designated with the moniker are not Indians. Conversely, teams named Seminoles, Braves, Blackhawks, Aztecs, Chiefs, etc. are not offensive or derogatory terms to most reasonable people, and therefore, tend to be acceptable names, unlike “Indians” or “red skins.” 
    • I had 11 clubs in the bag for a long time and recently bought a twelfth club.  But realistically I would only use about 7 to 8 clubs on a regular basis. Driver, 2h (just purchased and not played yet), 4h, maybe 7 to PW, SW or LW when I needed a flop or bunker shot and the putter of course
    • Well......the intent (or what I interpret as the intent) of naming a team is to create a certain image, and for sports this often means an image which suggests bravery, a fighting spirit, strength, etc. In and of itself, I don't agree that an entire population of a certain tribe is demeaned because a sports team chose to name itself after the tribe's warriors.  How the team chooses to depict the warriors.....that can be demeaning, as was clearly the case with the Indians' imagery of their former team namesakes.  I still don't entirely agree that it is wrong or demeaning to name a sports team after some class of warriors. It's a game, a sport, it's marketing, etc etc. The native tribes living today often bear no resemblance whatsoever to their warrior past.  What matters most is what the involved people think, however, and so in the end what I think doesn't really matter, as I'm not a member of an indigenous tribe. If I owned the Cleveland baseball team, I would rename it if I really believed it was hurtful or demeaning to a defined class of people. A few people feeling offended wouldn't be enough for me; you can't please everyone.
