Fix your swing path and get rid of your slice
Golfers who struggle with a slice often find themselves on the right side of the course throughout their round due to the nature of that ball flight. However, better golfers and golfers who tend to draw the ball will intentionally miss to the left. In this video, GOLFTEC’s Director of Teaching Quality, Brad Skupaka explains why the left is a better miss and how you can do that with a little tune-up of your swing.
