THE COMMON SLICE
Address positions can cure the faults that lead to a slice. If you struggle with a slice, lower back pain, or falling on to your back foot after impact, it all starts with the way you stand over the ball. At Tuks we use the K-Vest to measure the angles of your pelvis and upper body at address and through the swing. We are able to measure all the important factors that could drastically improve your golf swing.

These minor differences lead to massive differences as soon as the body starts to move during the swing. They include reverse spine angle (another lower back killer), and ‘hanging back,’ something you see in golfers with these setup issues. The body is over-rotated, and the right shoulder is way lower than right. This bad position is sure to lead a slice.
