I'm new to this forum, so hope I'm posting in the right place. I am just getting back into golf after a long break raising my little family. My handicap is currently 28. I can chip and putt very well. But my driving especially and fairway hits are not straight. Most times slicing the ball - a curve at the end to the right. I am hoping to get a few lessons to put it right. As its frustrating and gets me into trouble. Would appreciate any suggestions of things I could perhaps try? Thanks

Lessons is the best way

There are many reasons the ball ends up right and you need someone who can see you in action to tell you what's happening

That slice is caused by the club face being open to the head path at impact.

Stop hitting it left. Allowing for a slice makes it slice. Grip the club with a slightly closed face then hit to the right.

Or pay a professional to teach you how to do that.

Welcome to the house,

Get the basics checked and I'd pick on your grip. I see poor, weak top handed grips everyday. It's the biggest contributor in our golf game to the slice, it might feel comfortable but it will be wrong !

Buy new shafts ....... you'll be hitting 6 irons to 2 inches in no time ....

 

.... if that fails just go back and get another set of shafts fitted .... rinse and repeat until the magic happens ....

I disagree - the biggest contributor to the slice is an over the top swing. There is an abundance of pros with strong, weak, neutral grips who can still manage to hit a draw despite their grip.

I disagree back at you.

Why would you compare apples with lemons. He ( Susiq ) is not a pro, so don't try to align the two types of golfers swings and grips.

In a perfect world we'd all swing it like Adam Scott, is that your view and argument ?

I make my observation about weak grips, based on the average amateur golfer !

I don't disagree with you that the OTT move is a slice contributor but that wasn't my angle of attack in replying to Susiq.
