THE COM­MON SLICE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Locker Room -

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.

The pho­tos il­lus­trate a good ver­sus bad setup of me stand­ing with a 5-iron.

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.
