Stop Slicing Series (part one): Transfer Your Weight

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.

    A great drill. I use it with my driver, now i’m going to do it with other clubs.

    Excellent tip, Quite the Chap — thanks — I’ll try it.

      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.

    Very clear, no frills approach. A good way to present info.

    I love it.

    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!

    like your style …kind of laid back ….but effective enough to make and prove your point.

    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.

    Your tips are much appreciates Colby. Your character just adds to “the down to earth persona” that golfers endure day to day no matter what level you play at. Keep it going.

    You my friend have done more for my golf game. Now I laugh at my buddies that I am sure gave up their PGA Cards to coach me. You are direct and to the point and don’t bore people

    Can’t wait to try. I have trouble getting to my left side due to a severe left ankle sprain years ago and this drill looks like it might help.
