Question: What Causes A Slice Off The Tee?

Many people slice because they let their elbows slide inside and thus opening up the club head.

By keeping your elbow into your side, you can force your arms to “turnover” and hit the ball flush with the club head.

As you bring the club through, be sure to keep your front shoulder straight or facing toward the hole.

Is it better to draw or fade?
