Stop Slicing Series (part one): Transfer Your Weight

If you want to stop slicing, you need to make sure that you transfer your weight to your FRONT foot.

Do you want to stop slicing? Then make sure that you transfer your weight to your FRONT foot.

One of the most common faults that cause a slice is keeping your weight on your back foot as to start your downswing and complete your followthrough. It stops your lower body from rotating. It causes you to slash across the ball creating massive amounts of side spin.

The simplest drill to perform is the ‘Gary Player-step through swing’. It makes sure that you commit to swinging all with way through the ball. And you can do on the range and the golf course during your round.

      The reason the weight stays on the back foot is because the shoulders are turning faster than the hips !

    Great tip to hopefully end my slicing. I often end up stepping back rather than forward. Maybe this will add some yardage to my drives and give me better opportunities to reach the greens in regulation. Thanx much.

    Excellent reasoning and actual videos of stepping through the ball to transfer the weight of the body. I laughed out loud at the beginning of the video of hitting the big banana! Used to do that but it’s more of a power fade now– when I get the weight to the left side!! Wow– great tips here! KEEP IT UP!

    Have to love your videos. Your voice is calming and assuring and the advice is so simple but effective. My golf course, unfortunately doesn’t have a practice range and there is no range nearby where one can test these lessons but I will be trying this move next time I play. Thank you Alex for the videos.

    Maybe tell DeChambeau and we can speed up play at the same time. I don’t have a transfer problem, but I’ve seen this work wonders for my “Banana Ball” friends. Tends to shorten the distance considerably at first, but they actually love being able to find their tee shot. Superb advice from a student of the game.
