If you're a chronic slicer of the ball with your driver,
00:05
you have to understand that your clubface is definitely
00:07
open to the path as you're hitting the ball.
00:10
So you have to work on squaring off your clubface on time.
00:14
I have a great drill for you to practice,
00:16
it's gonna help you with your timing of getting the clubface
00:18
to square at impact.
00:20
It's called bunt shots.
00:21
So take your driver, and you're gonna work it
00:23
at a half swing size, at about half power, at hip height
00:29
from back to through, and as you come through
00:31
you're gonna work on reaching your arms
00:34
and rolling your hands over, right forearm over left.
00:38
This is gonna help you speed up the timing
00:40
of the clubface release so that you can hit straighter,
00:43
farther, shots.
00:45
It looks like this.
00:52
I hope these bunt shots help you get rid of your slice.
