Quick Tip: Miss the Stick & Fix Your Slice

Published on

Are you tired of your slice? Grab an alignment rod and let's get rid of it.
PGA Coach A.J. Nelson sent us a simple drill that could help you straighten out your shots, hit more fairways & greens and ultimately lower your scores.
All you need is an alignment rod; You can even pick up a plastic rod from your local hardware store for less than a dollar.
  • Stick the alignment rod two clubs lengths behind the ball.
  • The alignment rod should be approximately knee high.
  • Set up your alignment parallel to the rod
  • Work on swinging inside of the alignment rod; If you hit the stick, you're swing is coming over the top.
Check out the drill above & be sure to connect with a PGA Coach in your area for golf lessons that will help your game.
