How to Throw Out Your Slice
By David Phillips

This story is for you if...
• You usually slice or pull your tee shots
• You don't know when your backswing ends and your downswing begins
• You lack power
You figure that if you turn your upper body and your lower body in unison during your downswing, you'll be in a solid position at impact. What you get instead are weak slices and pulls.
Think of your downswing as a chain of events, not a unified motion. Move your lower body first and then your upper body, with your arms and clubhead bringing up the rear. This may sound a little complicated, but you've done it every time you've thrown a baseball, leading with your front leg and finishing up with your arm. Try the following drill to learn how to do it consistently in your swing.
