Bruce, in golf terms, is a typical slicer (puller) of the ball who tries to do too much too soon. If he can remain just slightly more patient (square longer) he'll be able to hit the ball to the opposite more easily. Not easy to do for baseball players, or most golfers.
I think you have it backwards. A slice, in golf, and a pull in baseball are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Totally opposite. Osuceltic explained it perfectly.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
