off centre strikes

Wed Jan 25, 2017 8:10 pm

Hi guy's,

Anyone like to offer their thoughts on what could be causing me to do this with my driver...! 

Believe it or not this was after hitting about 20 balls every one I hit came off the same position on the face resulting in a big slice 

I tried everything to stop doing this by altering my position to the ball to see if standing closer or further away from the ball would change where I was hitting on the club face but nothing worked,

I also had my 19Deg hybrid with me and my 7 iron and I was hitting them both OK,

Any thoughts....?

Cheers John

Possibly coming out of the shot trying to hit the longer club?

Too steep on take away makes you swing out to in. Generally when you pull your left arm in on the downswing you end up with a heel hit that is more of high scoopy slice. Have a look at Tim Barters Cane Plane drill.

It is still on Sky Sports Red Button.

SImple solution,

Move the strike tape more towards the toe and up a bit = centre strikes then :)

I was going to suggest using 'strike left' tape instead of 'strike right' :) 

You may find that next time you go to the range you hit it perfect and there's nothing to worry about!

I often start hitting similar with half swing wedge shots.  I am always advised against starting to set up with the toe addressing the ball, but instead address the ball in the middle of the clubface and try to strike the ball with the toe.  Often helps (but not always)!  Or, put a plastic bottle the other side of the ball, just enough to get the club through whilst hitting the ball from the centre of the face.  Ensures you strike away from the heel otherwise you take the bottle with you!

That's interesting. I was always taught to set up with the ball slightly heel side of centre because the toe down of the club will naturally centre up the ball on impact....

Similar thing I think Brattz, in this situation anyway.  Some people who 'shank' or hit toward the heel will setup with the ball more toward the toe, thinking the strike will then be more central.

I believe my coach is suggesting that addressing 'ball to toe' may tempt you to push the club away from you on the downswing.  So addressing 'ball to heel' may tempt you to bring the club toward you in the downswing.

have a look at this video John, helped me a lot, I bought some of the scholl athletes foot spray which is great for checking out off centre strikes as I know those stickers can be expensive ;) 

heel strikes 

also have a practise addressing out of heel( opposite of others suggestion) then try and hit out of middle or even toe, you will find yourself unknowingly keeping yourself back in stance and not tilting forward toward ball during downswing which i suspect you may well be doing..

if you can post a video of you hitting the driver ;)
If you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything.

Hi Keven,

That looks interesting next time I'm down at the course/ range I'll give that a go

I'll see if I can take a video of my swing and load it up but you all have to promise not to laugh to much as my swing is not a  pretty sight...! :shock:

I cant do a video at the moment as my I-Phone decided to give up the ghost and I'm waiting on a new one getting delivered in the next day or so but I'll see what I can do once I have it,

Cheers John :up:
