Default Help my golf game

Typical poker players either know everything or think they do. Alright so if you guys are so smart, fix my slice.

Here's a description of my problem:

I rarely hook or pull it anymore. I have almost eliminated the left side. Whether I hit an iron or a wood, I hit it either slightly right of where I am aiming or well right of where I am aiming. I want to hit the ball straight, can you know it alls help me?

sounds like a push, not a slice

a slice will typically start out way left and curve way right. a push will simply start out right.

for most people, the best place to start is having someone check your grip and alignment.

Close up the club face a little bit and take your natural swing.

Rinse & repeat with adjustments as you see fit, but try not to change your natural swing that feels comfortable to you.

If you miss it a little right, probably swing plane right, but clubface open.

If you slice it, club face still open and swing plane is outside-in (over the top).

describe the ball flight and other stuff, could be helpful in the analysis....

Does it start straight & tail off or is it straight, just on an angle slightly right of center?
How far right does it end up 10, 20, 30 yards?
What do you know about your swing plane? Straight or outside-in?
How about your divots, do they point straight, left, or right?

Geez, poker players really do know it all. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

My grip is strong.
With my woods, the ball starts straight and tails off to the right, losing a lot of power and distance. I do aim well left to counter this.

With my irons, the ball goes straight, but off to the right, I guess it is more like a push.

Divots point straight, swing plane is definitely not inside out, I don't think it's outside in though.

I guess I hit it about 25 yards right of where I am aiming with woods and maybe 15 yards right with irons.

I think a lesson for 20$-50$ with a coach would help you a lot more in person than anybody can do here over the net.

Move the ball forward in your stance a little. That will give you time to square the club face.
