Today we wanted to bring you a great lesson and golf tip from CPGA Professional Spencer Morland from The Rock Golf Club in Muskoka that shows you an extremely simple way you can improve your golf swing path so you can prevent hitting a slice and learn how to hit a draw.
Yes curing the slice is important but there is more that can be accomplished with the same fixes than just stopping your drives and iron slice off into trouble.
To cure a slice means to improve your swing path and connection too.
Both of which improve your swing speed and distances but also give you the opportunity to have more control over the golf ball. You see, a golfer should be able to move the golf ball with relative ease one way or the other no matter their level to shoot consistent golf scores and avoid those terrible bad holes with silly mistakes such as hitting into the water or out of bounds.
Let me ask you something…
Are you not tired of always trying to hit perfect straight golf shots and failing?
Don’t worry you are not alone. This error by most golfers in their pursuit of attempting to hit perfect straight golf shots is going to leave anyone beating their head against the wall. However if you understand that the golf ball is not meant to fly straight on any shot you will be taking a lot f pressure of yourself and scoring a lot better too!
OK, so maybe it’s a bit much to expect you to start going out and trying to play and swing like Bubba Watson, but the advantages of being able to curve the ball and at least an understanding how to shape the ball a little bit are vast.
The benefit of having ball shaping and control in your golf weaponry is crucial to lower consistent scores, even Jack Nicklaus stated that straight golf shots are bad. You see the ability to manoeuvre the golf ball will be very helpful to navigate the architecture of certain golf holes especially in Muskoka, steer away from trouble and play great golf no matter your level.
