Constantly hitting a slice can be frustrating and makes it nearly impossible to score well. The worse the slice, the tougher it is to keep the ball in play. âThe most common error when hitting a slice is that the arms run away from the body,â explains Mark Hackett, Director of Instruction at Old Palm and one of Golf Magazineâs Top 100 Teachers in America. âWhen the arms lift up and down, instead of rotating across the chest, it results in a slice.â Fortunately, thereâs an easy fix that you can try on the practice holes at Old Palmâs Golf Studio.
- Place the golf ball on a slight incline, so it lies above your feet
- Grip down on the club
- Play the ball back in your stance
