Why does my golf ball do that?
Most golfers rarely hit the ball dead straight.

Does your ball go straight from the tee?

And many amateurs know all about the slice where the ball starts straight and then veers off to the right.

Natural quirks in a golfer's swing will mean the ball might move slightly left or slightly right through the air.

Golfers such as Colin Montgomerie learn to use this to their advantage but also learn how to move the ball in other ways.

Our troubleshooting guide will tell you why the ball is moving in a certain flight path and golf coach, Nick Bradley, will tell you how to correct it.

Click through the links on the right hand side.

You can also check our guides on the basic set up and how to swing the club.
