The slice is arguably the most frustrating ailment in sports.
Golfers can do everything else well from striping irons to draining lengthy putts. But if they slice off the tee, the thought seeps into the other parts of their game. They play with less confidence. They take exaggerated stances in the tee box to try to offset their erratic drives. There’s nothing quite like it in any other game.
Few guaranteed cures exist for the slice. Most amateurs either ditch their drivers or, at the worst, abandon golf completely.
PGA teaching professional and owner and founder of USGolfTV Todd Kolb set out to explore the flight of the golf ball in hopes of better understanding the slice.
His teaching resume carries several awards including 2008 Minnesota Instructor of the Year and the 2014 Dakota Chapter of the Year. Kolb has sent numerous players to play Division I golf and mentored LPGA Tour professional Kim Kaufman from an early age. Still, the slice, and this is not unique to him, confounded Kolb.
Over the two years he studied the swings of professionals and weekend golfers. He started to reevaluate how he applied his teaching methods. What he came to find is that most all teachers, including himself, were flat out in wrong when it came to the slice.
Kolb took new information that emerged in teaching circles to heart. He began to work with his students to develop the shot the pros hit: a high draw. Now, after nearly two years of success, he’s taking his techniques public.
The Tour Draw is the latest product to hit the market promising to eliminate the slice. It is the only one, however, that guarantees to not only fix the slice, but to turn it into a controllable draw.
Golfers who once had control will now have it in spades.
