    Hi Colby,

    The unfortunate truth is: Never in the entire history of the game has an outside in swing path caused a slice. It can and does contribute to the development of a slice but the laws of physics — which do not like to be defied — dictate that the only thing that has ever caused a slice is a club face that is one and one half or more degrees open to whatever path the golfer happens to have. When you “fix” a slicer’s outside in path and make it an inside out path, all you’ve done is changed their pull slice and turned it into a push slice. Instead of their slice ending up 20 yards right, it ends up 40 yards right. Oops!

      I think Ron‘s comment is correct. If the grip and left arm take away are incorrect it’s difficult to square up the face at impact. Also, if the head is laid open at take away that can also be A problem. Suggestions for fixing this set of problems?

    The Outside -in- Path of the club causes a fade, which is then turned into a slice by leaving the face open.
    I say this after 55 years of being a Slicer. The only Instruction Book that showed me how not to slice is a Book by Joe Dante. The Four Fatal Moves in Golf….later brought up to date by Andy Brown. If you follow their suggested method of swinging the club, then you hit the ball straight everytime and maybe with a small DRAW. This system put 50 yards on my Woods and Long Irons, because I was not playing my second shot from the trees, but from down the middle and I immediately started winning club and area comps, in my Handicap group.. I was a 90 to 100 shot player and quickly dropped to 80 to 85,My Handicap dropped from 26 to 16 in less than 2 seasons.

    The main function of this system taught me how to use my right shoulder on the downswing

    I believe the two different swing paths tend to turn the club face in different directions or into different positions at impact–more open with the outside-in and more closed with the inside-out. The different paths also impart different side spin directions on the ball–left to right (slice) and right to left (draw). The simplest way I have seen to turn a slice into a straight shot or a draw is to aim at the inside of the ball, the left side for a right-hander. You will not actually hit the left side of the ball, but aiming for it can change your life.

    Close your stance, aim up the right side of the fairway and slightly close the face at address. Problem solved. Either straight or a slight draw. Worst case a hook but as you’re aiming up the right side it ends up on the left side but in play.
