Fixing Your Slice Off The Tee Comes Down To Feeling Your Golf Swing

“Fixing Your Slice Off The Tee Comes Down To Feeling Your Golf Swing”
If there’s one thing that haunts Golfers more than missing a 3-foot putt, it has to be slicing the ball off the tee. Fixing your slice can be a complicated task or it can be a simple solution – the choice is up to you.

Now the average person reading this will say – “Marc, I want the simple solution.” Although even after we help the Golfer to straighten out his/her tee shot and having them hit the golf ball better than ever … the Golfer will still ask – “ok, that’s fantastic, but what about working on a one plane swing, and what about an inside to out swing path, what about turning my wrist over at impact, isn’t my swing too flat, shouldn’t I work on getting my elbow down to my side on the downswing?”

Unfortunately all these unnecessary swing thoughts have been pounded into your brain and are actually causing many of your problems to get worse even though you have been led to believe that they are the solutions.

Because we hear the so called Golf Instruction experts each week on television or magazines or internet chat rooms or listening to our friends at the golf course – we assume that the solutions to simple things such as slicing the golf ball have to have complicated corrections.

And I actually enjoy hearing how complicated you think it is to fix your golf swing because to see your faces when you’re able to stop slicing the golf ball by just using some of our drills is fascinating.

Fascinating? Why Fascinating?

Because too many Golfers make this game harder than it needs to be. I am not saying the game is easy … I am saying most Golfers are trying to do too much in their golf swing … and that is making it more difficult for them to be consistent.

Think about this: 7 out of 10 Golfers have no sense of feel of what they’re doing in their golf swing. When Golfers are asked after a bad shot: “What did you feel on that golf swing?” Only 3 out of 10 can give an answer. And only 1 out of 10 is actually correct.

Which says that 9 out of 10 Golfers don’t know what they should be feeling in their golf swing. Thus, not knowing what you should be feeling directly leads to inconsistency.

Because not being able to feel the good parts of your golf swing after a good shot … makes it unlikely that you will repeat that golf swing on your next shot. Plus, not being able to feel the bad parts of your golf swing after a poor shot … makes it impossible to make the proper correction before your next shot.

Yet, even though 9 out of 10 Golfers are having trouble feeling their swing, all the Golf Instruction you’re bombarded with is about you learning swing positions as opposed to improving the feel of your golf swing.

Traditional golf instruction that deals with getting the club in certain positions is not related to learning feel – it’s more about giving you additional things to think about on every golf swing and turning you into a stiff Golfer that is going through a checklist of things to do in yourr golf swing while standing over the golf ball.

Who wants more to think about when you already have too much going through your mind on the 1st tee?

GMS helps you to improve your golf swing to hit the golf ball better and to eliminate your slice off the tee (we have 1,000’s of Testimonials, Returning Golfers and Referrals to prove it) – but we don’t use the ineffective approach that is employed by 9 out of 10 Instructors.

Where they’re teaching you positions they believe you need to be in, along with overwhelming you with their “Theories and Assumptions” … as you get worse and worse – we help you to feel what you’re doing in your swing so that you can repeat the good swing and make corrections after the bad swings.

We’re allowing you to feel the motion of your golf swing in a way you’ve never felt before so that you discover how to make a smooth, repeatable golf swing

So what causes a Slice? For a Righty – it’s the golf ball flying off the clubface with sidespin to the right. For a Lefty – its sidespin to the left.

To Stop A Slice Off The Tee – everything in your swing has to be moving together to produce a straight club face at impact. Yet, to get your body to do that, you need to learn drills that will allow you to feel the motion of your golf swing rather than thinking about it during your shot. Because if you’re thinking … you’re stinking.

Thinkers are Stinkers – learn to fell your golf swing to stop your slice and become more consistent.
