Be Flat At Impact - A Golfing Drill

One of the sneakiest slice causing culprits is the karate-chop hand or the home run swing. This is hard to spot unless you know what to look for. Try this golfing drill: Take a golf stance near a chair's padded back rest and let your hands form your grip against the back rest. At address, the undominant hand's back hand is flat on the backrest. Make a back and forward swing at the chair, a square impact has the back hand hitting flat against the back rest. If the pinky-side-palm-pad hits first (like a karate chop) you are opening up at impact. Practice this golfing drill until you can hit flat every time and you will be square at impact.
