Fix your slice with the Diagonal Ball Drill
The slice is a common shot among the majority of amateur golfers and can be caused by a number of different factors. One of the typical reasons behind the slice is to do with club path, and Phil Akers explains how to neutralise your swing path and starting bring the club down on a much more successful path into the golf ball.
The diagonal ball drill immediately requires you to hit the golf ball with a much better club path, as anything that is over the top or too much from right to left will cause you to make contact with either of the other two golf balls set up in the drill.
This drill along with the ball flight gives you immediate feedback on the range and helps you understand which path will be more successful in the future for your game and your specific golf swing.
