To fix their ball flight, a lot of slicers have been told to swing "inside out" and a lot of hookers have been told to swing "outside in." These are quick fixes to a flawed swing path. What they should be doing is swinging "inside to inside," meaning the club travels inside the target line throughout the swing except at impact, when it's directly on the target line. To illustrate this motion, imagine a pane of glass stationed next to the ball and parallel to the target line. Your goal is to make a swing that hits the ball, but never touches the glass, following an in-to-in path.
