The slice is probably one of the most
common swing flaws for amateurs. It is an outside-to-inside
swing path that creates side spin on the golf ball.
The side spin causes the ball to cut hard to the side, making
it a very frustrating day on the course. It also seems to
be one of the most difficult swing flaws to fix.
There have been hundreds of so-called golf training aids that
guarantee to cure your slice. And I am sure we have all bought
or thought about buying one of these gadgets after a frustrating
day on the course.
Some of these golf-training aids do help you to cure your
slice; others do not.
In addition to golf training aids, there have been countless
articles written about the golf slice.
These articles discuss the slice in-depth and oftentimes provide
“fixes” for the golf slice.
If you’ve been a golfer for any amount of time, I am sure
you’ve come across at least one or two of these articles.
Maybe you have even tried to implement some of the suggested
fixes into your golf swing. Some of these golf swing fixes
may have helped, others maybe not.

Providing information on curing swing flaws like the slice
is no different. Recently, some research from the University
of North Carolina provided some interesting information on
curing the slice.
A Professor from UNC and the head teaching pro from Pinehurst
(venue of the 2005 US Open) performed a series of research
studies on the golf swing slice.
These researchers took a group of golfers prone to slicing
the golf ball through a battery of tests. These tests were
to determine the best swing drills to the cure the dreaded
Golf swing drills, in general, break down the golf swing into
manageable parts to allow an individual to work on a specific
part of the swing.
It is very difficult, as we all know, to work on “fixing”
your swing when performing a full swing. It becomes too much
for the brain and body to process.
It is usually best to break down the swing into parts and
implement drills that work on specific parts of the swing.
This allows you to simplify the process, fix the area of the
swing that needs work, and eventually bring it back into the
full golf swing.
Back to the research project on the slice and the swing drills.
After the process of taking these amateur golfers through
this battery of swing drills, the researchers found that two
swing drills were of the greatest benefit.
These two drills apparently showed the greatest effect on
assisting the amateur golfer prone to slicing to fix such
The first drill that showed benefit was the “toe-in drill.”
This drill apparently placed the golfer in the correct positions
during the swing to assist in curing the slice.
The second drill was the “split hand.” This drill helped the
amateur “feel” the correct release of the club and the swing
path of the club.
Again, both of these drills during this research project indicated
the greatest amount of help to the amateur in the attempt
to cure the slice.
What points of validity can we draw from this research project?
Obviously, the “split hand” and “toe-in drill” are beneficial
in assisting an amateur golfer with the slice.
Secondly, it probably indicated that there are many swing
drills and possibly training aides that are not beneficial
to amateur golfer.
This points to the idea that the amateur golfer must understand
the swing in order to decipher what are the best drills for
Finally, it indicates that proper swing mechanics are necessary
for fundamental success on the golf course.
Obviously, a poor golf swing will result in poor play on the
