No, Shane isn't that much of a klutz. One of my star high school students, he did it as a favor for me to show how badly it can go out there. About 90% of amateur golfers slice the ball. Yes, the dreaded slice. There are about 150 reasons you slice, but there's no reason you have to think of those reasons. That would really drive you nuts.
As I explain in this video, you only have to think of two possibilities! Two! It's that simple. I really want you to enjoy the game again, not fill your mind with 150 swing thoughts. Take a look. Turn those slices and hooks into beautiful fades and draws.
Enjoy the game again,
P.S. While I can't tell you how much your personal emails mean to me, do a "shout out" on the site or Face Book about the DVD, The Three Fundamentals and my new book, Mirror Image Golf Swing. Tell your friends. And watch your email, we've got a special offer coming up. for the holidays!
Great job and congrats on your improvement, good going! Your members will be talking about you for sure. Now we have to get that handicap down to a 9! Fun to be single digits for sure.
Bev’s great and one of my favs.
The rolling the toe drill I like the best is one I learned from Ken Venturi when I worked for him.
Take a short iron like a 7 or 8. Stand square to the ball but sort of in a chipping stance with your feet closer together and you choked down on the club about 1/2 way down the grip.
Swing back about chipping stroke length, 3 feet or so. If you watched your clubhead going back you’d notice it opens, like a door opens. The toe of the club is swinging back, sort of leading the heel of the club. Think of a saloon door swinging open. (not that I spend a lot of time in saloons or anything)
Now, when you swing down and approach the ball, make the toe of the club start swinging shut. The toe of the club opens naturally during the backswing, then closes or ‘rolls’ naturally on the follow through. The toe passes the heel and swings shut after impact, just as the saloon door would when it swung through.
If you hit a bunch of these little ones you’ll get the feeling. Then do it with 1/2 swings back and though about waist high. In no time at all your body will have learned the feel and motion and it’ll be there in your full swing then. If you hooks some hooks when you’re learning it, that’s good. It just means you’ve over done it.
Keep working on it and let me know.
Love your website and your book which was given to me by one of your students, Bev Sakran. Just watched “Stopped Slicing” ,another great tip and noticed in the video you talked about rolling your hands. This is something that seems to come naturally to most golfers but I really have to think about rolling my hands. Any drills you could recommend to make this come more naturally to me? Thanks for all you do! After reading your book and lots of practice I went from a 21 to a 14 handicap and won Most Improved at both my Florida club, Pine Tree (Boynton Beach) and New York club Onondaga (Fayetteville, NY). Thanks again!!!!
