A slice can be boiled down to two key metrics: the clubface angle at impact and the club path direction. If the clubface is open relative to the path the club travels on, you’re guaranteed to hit a slice no matter what club you use.
Your slice may be a pull slice or a push slice; even a fade is considered a sliced shot. Whatever the case, an open clubface relative to the path always causes the ball to spin to the right if you’re a right-handed golfer.
