Our Best Slice Fix! Pre-Cock Your Right Hip

Pre-Cock Your Right Hip
Angus Murray
From your normal address, turn your right hip slightly behind you to jump-start an anti-slice, in-out swing.

Issue: August 1970
Instructor: Paul Segerlund
Demonstrated by Top 100 Teacher Chuck Evans

The Tip

Aim your clubface directly at your target, and set your body parallel left of your target. Before you start your swing, cock your right hip to the right — feel like you're turning your right pocket behind you.

Why It Works

Notice that when you pre-cock your right hip like this, you're naturally set up to take the club away slightly to the inside. You've just completed the first step of making a fundamentally correct anti-slice, inside-out swing. The pre-cock also makes it easy to turn your shoulders and hips to their limit.

The Top 100 Says

"This tip has stood the test of time — 39 years to be exact — because it reminds you to turn your body right from the start — a lot of amateurs simply lift their arms. My advice: Try this tip at the range first. If it works in practice, then bring it to the course." — Mike Perpich
