How do I fix a slice with my driver?
In addition to working on your golf swing, a good anti-slice driver can be extremely helpful in cutting down the slices off the tee. The best drivers for a slice have several features that you need to pay attention to.
Make sure that the driver is heel-weighted, or at least it can adjust the weight towards the heel. The center of gravity needs to be lower and deeper to help you launch the ball higher. The offset drivers are the best for a slice since they help you square the ball at the impact and direct the ball towards the target.
Does a draw driver correct your slice?
Since the slice occurs when you swing the club down steeply with an open face, it creates sidespin that makes the ball curve right (if you are a right-handed player).
The draw drivers are capable of preventing the slice spin that occurs at impact, thanks to the weight located near the heel. This weight allows golfers to correct the face’s opening as there’s a wider area of the face that launches the ball with a draw-spin.
Other features characteristic for the best drivers for slicers are lighter shafts, higher lofts, and upright lie angles.
Why do I keep slicing my driver?
There are several reasons why you are slicing your driver.
- You might be hitting the ball with an open club face;
- Your grip could be weak, and you might not release the hands properly;
- You might be making a steep swing into the ball;
- Your driver might not be set for draw shots.
