The GOLF RESEARCH ARCHIVE 2011 To 2021 - Cure To A Slice In Golf - The Left Hand Must Bear Back
At Impact The Golf Swing 100 Yares Ago

"If the hands are in advance of the club head at the instant of contact with the ball, a slice is sure to come off and the reverse, if the club head meets the ball ahead of the hands, a pull will result." Jerome D. Travers

HOW
TO SLICE

THE DUNNS SAY: "HOW TO SLICE CURVE-TO-RIGHT-CROSS-CUT STROKE"

Download :"To curve a ball sharply to the right to circumvent a tree or other obstacle, aim to left and swing the club across the line of play swinging club down outside line of play cutting across to inside line of play. At impact club face must be at "offset" facing somewhat to the right by having club handle somewhat ahead of the club head. Also hit off heel end of club face. Experiment alone can teach how much of each is required to produce a certain amount of curve in the ball's flight." ORIGINAL GOLF FUNDAMENTALS By The Dunns of Musselburgh, Scotland, 1897, 1907, 1922, 1930, 1934


"The left hand should act as a fulcrum against which the right hand strikes. Should this fulcrum collapse or give way, the club head will drag behind, and the club face will consequently not be square to the line of play, nor will it be perpendicular to the initial line of trajectory." ORIGINAL GOLF FUNDAMENTALS 1897, 1907, 1922, 1930 and 1934



HOW NOT
TO SLICE

HENRY COTTON SAYS:
"THE LEFT HAND RESISTS THE HIT OF THE RIGHT HAND"

Download : "the left hand resists the hit of the right hand." and "The accent in my swing is ever on the wrists, which provide 85 per cent. of the speed, the body only 15 per cent."

Download : "the hands in a way really work in opposition to each other at the crucial moment, the moment that counts, that of impact between the club-head and the ball, the left arm stopping at the wrist for an infinitesimal fraction of a second as the ball is struck, accelerating the speed of the clubhead. This momentary stoppage is not discernible to the eye, but it exists just the same."

British Amateur Champion 1904. Cuban Amateur Champion 1913, 1914


"Where, I think, the beginner starts off on the wrong foot in setting about attacking a golf ball, is that he imagines that he has to generate a movement in which, at the climax - i.e., the impact - his shoulders, arms and wrists will all be moving at their fastest. Here is the greatest mistake of all in golfing theory. It is not correct to sweep "the whole lot" through." Henry Cotton
