Slice Golf Shot Drill 9, Front Hand Glove Badge Away and Upside Down (Video)
Slice Golf Shot Drill 9, Front Hand Glove Badge Away and Upside Down (Video)

Here. Here’s a real nice little drill. It should give you an excellent feeling for how you can incorporate a good in-to-out swing path and a good hand action all in the same movements. If we look at where a slice is through the golf ball, we’ll often see a slicer pulling the left hand for a right-handed golfer and their badge into their body here and having the phase to put the sky. Now that’s going to be a slicer’s position, in and up.

A drawer’s position or the way to correct the slice, let’s look at the opposite of that. Let’s look at take on his left hand away from you and facing the ground, so we just watch the badge. If we can get the badge away and facing the ground, that should give you a really good indication of how the club can move in-to-out and rotate all at the same time so the badge is away from my body and upside-down instead of into my body and up into the air.

Just see if you can hold your position so you can check where that is. Let’s just do some short shots first with this drill rather than full swings, where the club finishes all the way around here and you can’t really check where your hand was so we could just make some little swings here where the club comes through in-to-out and I put my left hand to the floor. So I’ve hit out to the right and put my left-hand badge down to the ground, and it means that I’m swinging inside the line to outside the line and rotating the club phase. We’re going to look at you from front on now so you’re looking down the camera lens, hitting from in-to-out and turning the badge over instead of out-to-in and leaving the badge up to the sky.

So again, really good exercise for you on the driving range. Once you’ve worked on dropping the club inside and once you’ve worked on rotating your hands over, let’s put both of those exercises together and have this one where we chip the ball away with the mid-eye in but we have the badge upside-down and facing the floor away from the body when I’m chipping the ball forward. It’s not a full swing yet but I check my position, then I go to my full swing. It goes through that phase and then finishes, but I still went through that phase where my left-hand badge was facing the ground and away from my body.

Practice that exercise. Control the path. Control the rotation. Control your ball flight.
