The slide is a body movement in which the lower body shifts excessively toward the target. This is usually late in the downswing and frequently accompanied by a lack of hip rotation. The slide is often a compensation for a flip style release pattern. The slide prevents a golfer with a flip from hitting it fat. If you want to fix the slide, you'll have to do some work to the arm movements during the release. Specifically, you'll need the club head to be more behind from arm rotation and ulnar deviation. You'll usually need to reduce the internal rotation of the trail arm.
