Tips From The Pro - Why Do You Slice?

A weak grip is a common cause of a slice. The good news is that it is easy to check and correct. Looking down on your grip you should see two knuckles on the left hand and the 'V' shape between the thumb and forefinger on your right hand should point to your right shoulder. If you have a weak grip, you will see fewer than two knuckles on the left hand, while the 'V' on your right hand will aim at your chin.
