Butch Harmon's two-step slice fix

Two simple fixes for a better ball flight

By Butch Harmon

When I meet golfers who've been struggling with a slice since day one, I know I'm going to have some fun. Why? Because I can straighten their ball flight, even teach them to hit a draw, in a matter of minutes. Getting in the correct positions is easy. Beating a slice is ultimately about commitment and good habits.

If you're like most slicers, the first fix you need is in the setup. Close your feet, hips and shoulders so they're pointing to the right of your target. This takes some faith because you're shifting in the direction you want to avoid. But a closed setup does two things: First, it makes it easier to turn back and complete the backswing. Second, it slows down your hip turn on the way through (above), which allows your hands and arms to drop to the inside and swing out to the ball—the first step to hitting a draw.

Easy so far, right? Well, the next step flows from the first. From the top, focus on making a smooth body turn through impact; don't let your body spin open, as a lot of slicers do. (This is where the closed setup will help.) The key is, you want your arms to swing past your body, because your trail arm will roll over your lead arm, closing the clubface (above). That's the second step to hitting a draw.

So set your body closed, and let your arms go past you. You'll love what you see.

WHEN IN DOUBT, BENCH THE DRIVER

There's nothing impressive about grab-bing your driver on a tight hole if you end up flaring it into the junk. Taking a more lofted club makes good sense because more loft means less curve. So the same impact with a driver versus, say, a 5-wood can be the difference between having a shot to the green and being out of play. Hybrids are good choices, too, because they fly higher and land softer than fairway woods and long irons. Point is, don't let your ego win.

Learn how to turn back, not sway.

By Keely Levins

Let’s talk about hip turn. James Kinney, one of our Golf Digest Best Young Teachers and Director of Instruction at GolfTec Omaha, says that from the data GolfTec has collected, they’ve found lower handicap golfers have a more centered lower body at the top of the swing. Meaning, they don't sway.

If you’re swaying off the ball, you’re moving yourself off of your starting position. The low point of your swing moves back when you sway back, so you’re going to have to shift forward to get your club to bottom out where the ball is. That takes a lot of timing, and is going to end up producing some ugly shots.

So, instead, Kinney says you should turn.

“When turning your hips, you are able to stay more centered over the golf ball in your backswing and the low point of your swing stays in the proper position, resulting in consistent contact.”

To practice turning, Kinney says to set up in a doorway. Have your back foot against the doorframe. When you make your lower body move back, your hip will hit the door fame if you're swaying. If you're turning, your hips are safe from hitting the frame.

Remember that feeling of turning when you’re on the course and your ball striking is going to get a whole lot more consistent.

We field many calls of golfers looking for a fun, relaxing golf league to join so we have decided to open up registration for two new golf leagues. 

Men's Team League on Monday nights with starting times between 5 & 6pm.  A perfect league for both experienced and novice league players.  Get a buddy and join the fun on Monday nights.  Two man teams will compete against eachother in a handicapped best ball format.  Points will be accumulated by holes won and the team with the most points at season end will be the winner.  Weekly hole contests and weekly skins game will be held.  Mid-season & end of season scrambles will be held along with a final night party.  Enjoy nightly food and beverage specials after golf with friendly service from our outstanding hospitality team.   Entry Fee:  $224 per player includes green fees, prizes, hole contests and final night dinner.

Tuesday Fun & Folly Scramble League.  Coed teams will play in a fun scramble format.  Teams will receive a scramble handicap and will vie for hole contest prizes, team prizes and mystery games each week.  Grab your spouse, friend or significant other and join this night of fun, friendship and folly.  Starting times begin at 5:40pm.  Enjoy nightly food and beverage specials after golf with friendly service from our outstanding hospitality team.  The league is 16 weeks from May 8th thru August 28th.  League Fee is $320 per team and includes green fees, prizes and final night dinner party.  Teams may walk or rent a power cart for $16 per week.

Ladies Night Out Learning League is a league for women who have are ready to take to the course after some prior instruction, such as our Ladies Night Out Clinics.  This league offers women the chance to learn how to play in a relaxed, non judgemental environment.  Our idea is to give you the opportunity to play golf with others going through the learning process.  Players are encouraged to help eachother out and experiment and learn as a group.  You may sign up individually or with a partner you would like to learn and play with each week.  We will schedule groups and times so you will know when and with whom you are playing.  Starting times will begin at 6:00pm after other leagues have started so that there will be no pressure on this league from non league players playing behind you.  The league is seperated into two 6 week sessions.  You may sign up for one or both sessions with the cost of each sesson being $125 includes golf, power cart and warm up basket of range balls before you play.  

 

9 Reasons to have your golf league at Meridian Sun!

  1. Cozy Atmosphere - Friendly & Fun:  We know that you've put in a full days work and now it's time to relax and have a good time.  Make yourself comfortable and enjoy some friendly Haslett hospitality.  Like Cheers, we know your name.
  2. Great Golf Value - We offer one of the best league rates in the area and couple it with the best pre-league price around.  League green fees start at $11 per night.  Play nine holes before or after your league round for a $5 cart fee.  Power carts are not required for league play but can be rented for $8 per person.  Cart discount cards are offered for those players interested in paying for their cart fees in advance.
  3. The Golf Course - Charming & Challenging:  The course has two very distinct nines that can be categorized as Charming and Challenging.  The front nine is charming with more open and rolling terrain and large greens that can be approached from the air or the ground.  The back nine is a bit more tricky with water hazards coming into play on the first six holes and small undulating greens.  Although its a bit shorter, many feel its also a bit more challenging.
  4. Khaki's Bar & Grill - Nothing makes you feel more comfortable than an old pair of khakis.  That's the feeling you'll have when you come in and sip on a cold one overlooking the golf course from our dining room, deck or patio. Enjoy the beautiful sunset over the 7th green while you feast on what our players call the best burger in town.
  5. Specials Made Just for You - Each week our team creates new specials just for our league players.  Try one of our stuffed burgers, creative quesadillas, bbq ribs, slow roasted pulled pork and more.  Plus fabulous drink features sure to wet your whistle.
  6. Wonderful Warm Up Area - We have everyrthing you need to get your round started right.  At our practice facililty you have access to a full range to crank your driver, a short game area for mastering your wedge game and putting green for honing your skills with the flat stick.  Conveniently located, you can walk off the range or poutting green right to the 1st or 10th tees.
  7. Prizes, Hole Contests and More - We assist with getting your prizes, hole contests and whatever else you might need for your league.  In fact we even provide some FREE prizes for your final party.
  8. $100 Gift Certificate - We give your league a $100 gift certificate to use for prizes, food and beverage or to reward the league coordinator for a job well done.
  9. FREE Golf - Each league receives a number of free golf nights to use after the league has completed it's official season.  All you have to pay is the cart fee.  It's our way of saying thanks and let's face it the season is too short.   You've paid all summer and now we want you to enjoy the benefits of playing some beautiful fall golf on our dime.
