My dominant shot shape is a slice. How to fix that?

Everybody has a predominant shot shape, be it a draw or a fade type swing. some just hit it dead straight. I know plenty of single hcps that dun shape shots but suffer when they play tight courses or when they get into trouble. 

Being able to shape shots will be a huge advantage. If you are stuck behind an obstacle. i.e tree or lamp post, etc. It also allows you to manage the course differently. 

It also helps when u play course with lotsa dogleg holes, or have alot of trouble left/right of fw.

I agree with slinger that its not necessary, but def a plus if you can do it, play any course also no fear. 

being able to shape shots also promotes more imaginative play. Sometimes abit risky, but i think its fun and worth taking risks sometimes. a perfectly executed shot is the best feeling ever!! Razz

All that said. it doesn't matter if u draw/hook, fade/slice! as long as you are consistent and accurate. everyone will fear you! muahahahaha!!!
er.....lamp post free lift leh....Beer
Only if it obstructs your stance or swing leh. Not if its in your intended flight path right? so gotta draw or slice around it mah!

If not, use a LH club if there's obstruction.  I heard there are some golfers who are ambidextrous  Very Happy

Martin Hall, on the Golf Channel. Very Happy

To be precise, tilting your eye line such that the left eye is closer to the ground helps promote a more descending blow, this is of course with regards to iron play. It's a tip to help those who have a tendency to top the ball.

He didn't say anything about a draw though. Rolling Eyes

BTW, Jack Nicklaus does that to trigger the onset of his takeaway but not to create a draw ...
