    Strengthen your grip by turning your hands away from your target, and set your palms parallel with one another. Keep the grip soft so that it releases easily as you swing through impact with the ball.

  2. Reverse the loop

Use your hands to make a slow circle, in which you swing the club toward the target, but keep going up above your head and down over the ball.

  3. Let your body provide the momentum

    Work some body turn into this drill, and move the opening of the loop from the front of the ball toward the position where you address the ball. After grooving the clockwise circular motion, it's time add to your shoulders to the swing, so add the shoulder turn. Repeat this entire drill as needed to address recurrences of your slice.
