Good on ya mate!

 

Interesting that the elbow to the hip works for you. I find that when I do that I end up opening the club face up even more and turn a push slice into a shot that can almost do a 90 degree turn in mid air.

 

Side Note 1: Also, Hole 8 looks tough for a short hitter. Yick.

Side Note 2: I slice even worse with a K15. It clearly can't fix everyone :lol:

 

Please note that the distances are in meters, not yards... so you should add 10% to get the equivalent in yards :P

 

Surprisingly, hole 8 was one of the holes where I shot par! :P

 

I haven't looked at the club face while trying this, but the elbow to the hip definitely helps me hit the inside quarter of the ball. If I hit it too softly, it creates a push, if I hit it hard enough it creates a draw.

 

Here is a another drill the nice guys at DiamondTourGolf gave me... I tried it and it worked wonders:

 

When you address the ball, split the ball in 4 sections:

 

1 | 2

-----

3 | 4

 

If you are right handed, start using a 9 or 7 iron hitting 50% swings on section 4. At 50% the ball will most likely be pushed to the right, since you are not hitting hard enough to spin the ball back and create a draw. Keep doing that and increasing your power little by little so once you reach 90% your ball should be drawing to the middle.

 

I started with a 9, then a 7, then a 5 and then a hybrid and tried to draw the ball with every club. If you fail, then slow down the swing until you get the feeling again.

 

Once I was done with the hybrid, I moved on to the driver and the slices were gone!

 

If you want to hit the ball on section 4, you must do the elbow to hip thing, otherwise I don't see how you can hit from inside.

 

Hope it helps!
