Hi Chris

This is the most common fault of all golfers - almost everyone wants to hit a draw (starts right and goes left). Check these few things :

THE MAJORITY OF FAULTS CAUSING THE SLICE ARE IN THE SETUP
is the clubface pointing right (open) at address
is the ball too far forward in the stance
is the body/feet aligned too far left of the target line
is the grip too weak (too far around to the left of the grip)
are the feet too close together
is the ball too far away from the body

IIt will also help to look at the following tips : http://www.golfauction.co.za/general/tips/general/slice.htm
