Hitting the ball straight

Several things influence the direction of your shot, none more critical than the clubface direction. The easiest way to understand your clubface is in terms of "open" and "closed."

Some of you will look at a square clubface and think it's open; it is not; what you are seeing is the loft. The bottom edge of the club is in a straight line.


You need to understand that the clubface projects the ball in the direction it's facing at impact, and the path creates the curve.


The amount of the curve is dependent on the difference between the two.


Almost every beginner golfer has a path from the outside of the ball to in, "out to in".


What to do when practicing is observe your ball flight direction and relate it to where your clubface is pointing and what path you are swinging on, and then adjust.
