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

    • Just played Freshwater Golf Club on the Isle of Wight today whilst on holiday. Never played this course before and also forgot my Garmin watch (grrr). Point is only had 8 clubs and putter, D 3h 4 6 7 8 9 SW P. To be honest it was plenty of equipment 14 is too many. Played to handicap. 
    • Shot 82 yesterday, 14 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, zero penalty strokes. Ball striking was pretty good. No exceptional shots, but all my misses were manageable, except one approach that I toed so bad I almost missed the ball completely. Driver contact was higher on the face the usual, which resulted in some higher and shorter drives.  After putting in some practice time on chipping and pitching last week, there was a noticeable improvement in my short game. I had 5 GIR, and each birdie putt was in a makeable range, but none dropped, but made up for it with some 1-putt pars, including a sand save.
    • I'm in Southeast Florida.  The course I typically play has reduced rates for the off season between the end of April until the end of August.  Sometimes rates further reduce in the afternoon.  Afternoons during the summer would be the time you can likely find the lowest rates.  People avoid those times due to the heat.  Rates are highest between fall and spring.  Peak is typically Thanksgiving to Easter when seasonal resident (snowbird) play is at its highest.
    • Yup. I have started to play better recently and the soft cap was removed. I am now closer to my low index than I am to the high index that triggered the soft cap. Frankly, I have no problem when my cap is going downward. It means I am playing and scoring better. I usually play for some money and I notice I win more when my index is close to the low index. I was getting hammered as my cap went up. The extra strokes meant nothing.
