lol at Yorkshire gruffnes fair enough,I will take the point with grace
that said,at least the guy now has a thread,he was facing 'noughter' disgrace,and the blow to his self confidence could have been catastrophic,so I will console myself that at the very least I have possibly saved one fellow tortured soul
slice? oh yes,sounds like out to in with a clubface square to the target line,so I think its safe advice to work on stance,grip and posture first,then takeaway.
Having a lesson is a good idea though all told.
I was slicing a lot ( and still do ) so I spent 30 mins with a local pro and we worked on a couple of things.I was addressing the ball with the club in my right hand which in turn was causing me to close my stance when I brought my left hand across to the club.This was causing me to aim more to the right than I thought I was, consequently I was compensating with my hands and opening the clubface causing the slice.Does that make sense???? anyway he spotted this after I hit about 3 balls.
I was also not transferring my weight to my front foot (a reverse pivot also spotted by someone on this forum - see my swing movie in the picture section)
So I am now addressing with my left hand on the club, my left foot slightly behind my right and practicing a little drill he told me to get my weight transfer correct.It cost me £14 for the lesson and has given me a couple of relatively minor adjustments to work on which I can already see are improving my consistency with straighter drives and more accurate iron shots.BTW the drill for getting weight to my front foot was to stand with both my legs together and hit a ball half backswing half follow through.
