Fixing the "Slice". Not many things can kill your distance off the tee or get you in trouble like a "slice". Try this, "close your stance" in the picture you can see my LEFT foot is in front of the line (closer to the ball). This simple thing can help to cure the "slice" gain more yardage and keep you in the fairway. Get to the range, work on it, you will lower your score.
To many times I see the average golfer feel like if the ball is a few feet off the green they must chip it. Tip: If your ball is just off the green (in mowed grass) use you putter instead of chipping. Eliminate the risk of "chunking" or "blading" it. You'll save strokes and lower your score.
There is a reason pros take time to line up putts...IT MATTERS! If you want to shave strokes off your game take a little more time reading the breaks from all sides of the hole, ESPECIALLY the LOW SIDE of the hole. Don't just look from the ball to the hole, go to the other side of the hole and look back at the ball. Get low, you will notice the contours better, even subtle breaks near the hole that will make the difference. Then set the line on the ball to match the line of your putt, trust it and let it roll. Do these simple things and you'll make more putts and lower your score. Remember, doing it in a timely fashion is important.
