Will a driver fitting fix my slice? Short answer, yes.
If you slice the ball, you’re probably like many golfers and have probably invested in a lot of different training aids. For some reason, most golfers have a weak left hand (assuming you’re a right-handed player), which directly affects the club path. Many golfers mistakenly assume that this side spin is caused by an out-to-in swing path (across the ball), but that is incorrect. After 15 years of golf training, the following information is the best approach I’ve found to repair a slice quickly and effectively.

How do I repair a slice with my driver?
Don’t compensate for this by thinking that you need to aim even more to the left in the opposite direction of your slice. But why do most golfers cut with their driver rather than their irons? Why is everyone having the exact same problem when it comes to iron versus drivers? Align the clubface by rotating the tip (outer edge) of the club over the heel (inner edge) as you swing through the impact. A slice is caused when your golf ball is given a side spin, causing the ball to curve during its flight.
At this point, you may have all the information you need to repair your slice. If this is the case, continue with the Practice and Swing sections.
Why do I hit a slice with my driver?
This means that your club is out of the ball’s line (or farther away from you than it should be) during the first part of your downswing. Hitting a cut with iron will magnify that miss shot with a driver as it is a much longer club and has less loft. Make sure your club length is correct or you’ll compensate for your swing to make the racket work for you if not. A path from outside to inside occurs when the golfer reaches too far down and brings the club down to the right of the ball (outside) relative to the finish line.
