Here's another golf tip: How to cure your slice
The dreaded slice: an out-to-in swing path in which the clubface is open at impact causing a tremendous amount of side-spin on the ball sending it off course. A swing fault many of us have had to deal with at some time or another in our golfing careers.
Well, improving your golf game is fundamentally a process of improving both the body and the swing. I was reading some results of research conducted by a professor from UNC. Professor Bob Christina is also the head teaching pro from Pinehurst (venue for the 2005 US Open). A group of golfers prone to slicing the ball was put through specific tests designed to determine the best drills to cure the slice.
The research project revealed two drills that resulted in the greatest help in curing the slice. The first drill was the “toe-in drill” and the second “split-hands.” Without getting into detail these 2 drills out of the 100 drills tested proved to be the best for assisting in the cure of the slice.
I see a couple of valid points from the research project. Number one, it indicates that proper swing mechanics are fundamental to a successful swing. Number two, it indicates that there are numerous swing drills that are not beneficial to the improvement of your swing mechanics.
Relate this to your body and you get the same conclusions. There are hundreds of exercises available to you. Few of them are beneficial to the golfer, and one must know how to implement them correctly for the greatest benefit.
Remember to work on your body as well as your swing when it comes to the development of your golf game.
