How to Slice a Golf Ball

Learn how to slice a golf ball from golf pro Michael Samaniego in this Howcast golf video.


Hi, my name is Michael Samaniego golf professional at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. Chalk Mountain Golf Course is a championship level golf course with 3 professional golfers, including myself. And today I'm going to talk to you about golf. Let's talk about slicing the ball. Remember that in slicing or fading the ball we're really talking about how we shape a ball. We want to talk about how we shape our shot. So what I want to do is you want to make sure that you aim left of your target, our intended target. Your toes, knees, hips, and shoulders are left of your intended target. The club face is aimed in the direction of your target with your hands slightly forward. This is gonna cause or allow the club to come outside that plain that we talked about. So we're gonna swing out and across and down my toe line, which is gonna allow the ball to have a trajectory or a shape of left to right rotation. The ball will actually rotate left to right which will allow the ball to shape and go from left to right or slice and fall.
