Good Morning Paul,
Your previous tip was on having a fade be our go to shot.
Doesn’t a fade have slice spin?
Should I be able to hit a fade while rolling the club over?
This is very confusing for me.

A fade has some spin to the right. A slice has severe spin. This is too much and would be the time you break the chain. Also, if you do not like any shot going right you (fade included) you would break the chain as well.
This type of fade has you releasing the club as you normally would. Because the face is open relative to the stance you the ball will fade even when releasing it.

Paul ,just a comment on golf in general . I am 77 and walk average of three 18 holes a week. I see competitors much younger whizzing around in carts but we play to the same handicap .Naturally I get tired at about the 15th but have to battle on, whilst my oponents show no signs of fatigue.
I don’t think this advantage would be allowed in any other sport.
I love taking carts. Some people like to walk. Not much you can do about it.
I did a tip on how to come down the stretch.

Paul, you mention how much you hate to see a player slice, especially multiple shots in succession but you fail to mention that it’s not “always” an open club face that creates the slice. I can say that I slice my 6i-Driver due to an outside-in swing path, however, typically the club face HAS been squared up. Often times I wind up with a pull because of this swing path but again, that proves my club face is square at impact. I would like to see more info on an over-the-top swing correction. I am actually slapping at the ball, not a full over the top if you will. You can see that my club face tries to open too early in video, hence slapping the club face out some to prepare it for impact. Talk about a mental block! I have a practice net at home and believe me, I’ve done everything from using gadgets to trying to take my arms and hands out of the equation to NO AVAIL! Help! Thanks for all the tips, Tony
Disregard I see the fix under “stop pulling…”. Thanks again, I’ll work on this!
Glad you found it. There are many cures listed there.

I find that slice spin is even more disheartening than occasionally topping the ball into the water. For me I follow the wrist roll.and some good shots ensue, but slice spin always comes back. I can swing club right or left handed but left is much more fluid. My dominant throwing arm is right hand. Could it be more difficult for get rid of slice spin because my right arm is stronger than my left? A right handed golfer would usually have a lead arm Left that is less dominant. I am weary of hitting shots with slice spins.

It comes back because you keep swinging way too hard with your arms. Plus, you have not rolled it enough to master it. This is usually from the person not liking the look of a big hook so they stop doing it or do it less to get their shots to look half decent. This is a drill. You need to be rolling it and feel how it feels to roll it constantly until you have it mastered. This means doing it home, at the course, when you play etc. Constantly do this until you are good at it. Do it slow so you make sure you are doing it.
It is not an arm issue. It is a you always trying to do it at 100% problem. Do it less than 50%. Watch it. Understand it. Then constantly practice it. This really does not take that long if you are doing it right.

Okay, I will keep trying. I have slowed down, but can see it not enough. Just got little discouraged. Will keep trying my best. Thanks Paul. Harold
