Subject: Why We Hit The Ball So Badly

I maintain that the reason most golfers hit the ball so badly is that they don't know what they're doing. (LOL)
But seriously, folks, that's literally true. It is virtually impossible for the self-taught golfer (that means most of us, who've never had a lesson) to know what he is doing - either right or wrong - in his golf swing, because he doesn't know what move causes what to happen, nor does he even know exactly what he is doing to cause his slice, or even remotely, what to do to correct it.
Golf magazines never explain what you may be, or probably are doing to cause a slice, for example, or what to do to create a draw.
They need to explain, in very basic terms, exactly what the golfer is doing wrong - if he is slicing - (and that is the #1 problem that most of us have) and exactly how to correct it.

...simply put Alan, if the ball starts left of target and slices to the right= closed clubface at impact and outside in swing path causing sidespin. You have 2 things to change, open your clubface at impact by moving your left thumb to the 1 or 2 o'clock position on the grip, and then bringing your club to the inside on take away!

If you are starting the ball out to the right and hooks to the left, then you have to do the opposite. (open clubface at impact and inside out swing path causing sidespin).

Rule of thumb=
1.) hook/slice is a swing path problem caused by sidespin at impact- (outside in/ inside out)
2.) ball starting right or left of target at impact, is a clubface problem which is cured by left hand on grip-turn right for slice or turn left for hook. 1 to 2 o'clock is generally what MOST golfers will use.
Hope this helps, it's not rocket science but it is physics.
