Keep your head down through the swing motion, don’t look up until you are well past the center point and make sure you are followng through with your right hand (if you are right-handed)

I found that if I turn my right hand over slightly inwards (assuming you are right handed), pull your elbows in a little and slightly bend your knees, you should straighten it out. I also slowed my back swing down considerably. Now I’m hitting them long and straight.

Lessons of course.

If envisage a line through the golf ball towards the target.

The slice is produced by you coming across the ball, from outside the line and finishing inside the line.

You need to develop a swing which goes from inside the line to outside the line.

At the top of your back swing, the first move in your forward swing should be to drop your right elbow down in to your right side and fire the club head from inside to outside the line.

This should produce a slight draw. The draw is desirable as it creates more distance. When the drawn ball lands it scoots much farther than a slice which lands soft with little roll.

Get lessons and practise.

The most common fix for a slice is rotating your grip counter-clockwise for a slice, and clockwise for a hook.

Try to use stiff shaft, I used to use Regular shaft but after I have changed the shaft to stiff, I can hit it
much further than before and also straighter, so go can change your shaft immediately.
HAPPY GOLFING!

Swing club straight back and straight through. A slice is caused by cutting across the face of the ball.

Swing with your arms and leave your body still. You can put as much swing into it as you want and it will either go straight down the pipe, or have a draw/hook depending on contact. Try it before you play next time on the range. It helped me out tremendously. Good luck.
