To fully cure your slice you will need to work on various factors including your balance, stance and overall swing technique. By making slight modifications to each of these, we can reduce the chance of a slice.
I’ve learned to develop a rhythm to my swings. If you rush your backswing too much, you may lose power on your downswing. You may find that if your slow down your backswing to a steadier pace, you will be able to preserve some energy that can be used in your downswing.
If you complete a swing and don’t feel balanced in your end stance, then your swing is incorrect. Do not simply fix your posture afterwards to regain your balance. You need to analyze your entire swing to find a way to keep your body in balance through the full motion.
If your head moves at any time during a swing, you may either slice the ball or negatively affect it’s overall distance. To prevent this, you need to keep your head as motionless as possible and only allow yourself to look up when your shoulders cause you to do so.
Don’t forget to check your setup before each swing. Your feet should be aligned and positioned to point towards the target.
Take these tips with you to your next game and give them the appropriate amount of practice. It’s useless learning a new technique and never putting it to any use. Always go the range with something that needs to be accomplished as this is the best way to develop your swing.

As you should know, the right hand plays a passive part in a golf swing and should be regarded as more of a guide than anything else. Using your right hand to add additional power will only cast the club and reduce your distance.
Holding your golf grip with the right amount of pressure will help you to swing correctly. Spend some time simply swinging on the range again, but this time I want you slowly release some of the pressure on your grip. To really put power into a swing, we usually end up squeezing all life out of our clubs. A completely neutral grip will help to stop slices and ultimately add yards to your swing.
Take note of your position in relation to the ball. Though it seems logical that having a greater distance between yourself and the ball, you will have a greater swing area and make a better shot.
