Golf is a game of excitement and uncertainties. Golf, from teeing to putting, enthralls you. All the shots you play on a golf course are prone to minute errors. These errors follow butterfly effect, the effect, which says that these small errors can turn into the great blunders.
Golf slices are such errors that are the results of improper shots. If the club is open at the impact, the ball do not follow the trajectory you intended. This is called slice. Well, arguably there can be three types of slices.
Straight Slice: It happens when the path of your swing is straight; however, the face of the club is open at the impact. The ball goes straight for a while and then turns to left or right.
Push Slice: When the path is not straight but slightly inside-out and the club-face is open at the time of impact, push slice is inevitable. The ball goes right initially and move further in the right.
Pull Slice: It occurs when an outside-in shot is played with an open club-face. It hits the ball in the left, but because of the open club-face it moves in the right direction and miss the intended trajectory.
