    Hi I really need tips on how to stop slicing the golf ball. I want to hit the fairway I'm aiming for.

    One problem is it can have multiple issues.
    For me it is the clubhead not overtaking when swinging full speed. Go check with a coach to check out what causes it so you can fix it.

    Good luck!

    Thankyou I definitely think a lesson or two will be the way to go. Just thought someone would have some quick tips that I could try now.

    I had this problem a few weeks ago and went nuts on this. There are A LOT of things that can factor into this. my advice is to do some research online, you'll see different approach. It could be your setup (stance), your grip, club face not squaring at impact and the list goes on. Either watch those videos or see a PGA Professional that can assist you. I'm sure within a 1/2 hour they'll be able to see what's going on and how to address it.

    If it was me, i would get the lesson and go from there. It can only help.

    There are no quick tips! Especially harder to guess what the issue is aside from contact. A lesson would be the best advice!

    First 10+ years i played (self taught) all i could hit was a weak slice. Got with a pro and rebuilt my swing. Now i fight the duck hook... always something to challenge us in this crazy game. Biggest change for me was going from a weak grip that encouraged a high right shoulder to a strong grip and more shoulder tilt. Really concentrated on coming into the ball from the inside. Best of luck to you and glad to hear you plan on getting some professional help. Second eyes are a must. Couldn't believe what i saw after being recorded on video. What you feel and what you do are not always the same.

    Thanks guy really appreciate the advice. Definitely going to see out a local pro round my way.

    As others have said, there are several contributing factors, but for me if you think of the top of the handle as a clock, I found turning my top hand thumb from 12 o'clock (straight down shaft) to 2 o'clock (i.e., stronger grip) was the biggest helper in eliminating the banana ball.

    I'm sure some have differing opinions of the guy, but I watched Rick Shiel's Youtube series on how to cure a slice and it's been a huge help - last year and this year. ;-)

    Good luck!

    If there was a magic pill for that, there are many things that can be wrong from set up to how you grip and even the club it self
    Per personal experience, I needed to get a stiff shaft on my driver in order to reduce the slice, and I mean a lot, I used to have a huge banana to the right every time, went to the monitor and realize that my shaft was too "soft" for my swing, I got a stiff shaft put on it and have reduced my slices by 80%, didnt cure at all, I still work on my mechanics.
    I actually have picked up a reliable slight fade on my swing that helps a lot, even the slices are not as terrible as they used to be.
    One thing I notices is that with a new shaft my club-head set up has changed too, I started with a massive super closed face, which lead to some bad blocks straight left, and slowly changed, now my club head is set up to a normal "flat" set up.
    which it will stay for the time being.
    As suggested before, get an instructor to take work with you and see the points you need to touch.
    Also try to get in front of a trackman to see if your driver is set up the best for you.
    Best of luck
