Even if you’re stuck inside for the winter, you can still work on your golf game
THINK THAT SLICE OF YOURS is just in hibernation for the winter, only to make its unseemly return in the spring when you return to the golf course?
Well, maybe not. Maybe you can begin to cure that slice this winter. All you need is a club and… a wall.
In the above video, the Pinehurst Golf Academy’s Eric Alpenfels explains.
Maybe you can begin to cure that slice this winter. All you need is a club and… a wall.
THE PROBLEM: A common problem for slicers is pulling the club too far inside on the takeaway. But even if you’re stuck inside for the winter, you can still work on your golf game.
THE DRILL: The Wall Drill provides something other anti-slice drills don’t: immediate and effective feedback. Bumping the wall lets the golfer know right away that his club is too far inside. It’s a single objective – don’t hit the wall. After doing it a while, it’s easy to recall a mental picture of the wall, which helps correct the shape of the backswing. It’s a simple, memorable and effective image.
THE RESULTS: This should reduce the inside path angle of backswing significantly. It also may help with distance. The Pinehurst Golf Academy’s original study found that test subjects even added an average of 13.72 yards of carry with a 6-iron.
