Golf Tip: Backwards Drill to Stop Slicing

August 28, 2012

How to Stop Slicing

Slicing is a tough thing for beginner golfers to fix. But, doing the right practice drills can help you stop hitting the ball so it takes a dramatic curve.

Minnesota PGA professional Jim Manthis has a great drill to help you stop slicing – you just need to hit the ball backwards! This video shows how it’s done.

Put an aiming stick down even with your golf ball. Then,  you put your back to the target and position your toes so that they’re even with the aiming stick. Make sure you’re far enough away from the ball so you can swing (backwards) and your arms will clear your left leg.  Just reach around and put your club square to the ball. When you swing, you’ll be forced to hit on the inside of the golf ball – and that’s the key to stop a slice.

Jim has another drill to help you stop slicing – it’s called the Stork Drill. Watch this video to see how it’s done and start practicing today!
