Video Golf Tip | Square Clubface At Impact
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction at McGetrick Golf Academy and today I am going to talk a little bit more about impact and about helping you understand about where you clubface needs to be at impact and how to work on practicing a square clubface. I am going to use the back of this two by four. As I set up the club is square to that, and that is basically my ball position. What I would like to see you do is jam some tees on the front side of the two by four so that it does not move because you are going to apply pressure to it. You are going to practice, you are going to swing back, you are going to come down into impact slowly, and again the hips are going to be open at impact, the hands are going to be forward and this lets you see just how much forward they need to be to square that clubface. I am not trying to come into that board with an open clubface, I am trying to come in with a square clubface. It is teaching me how to apply pressure to the golf ball. Again, back, come down slowly, rotate, square clubface. If every time you are coming down you are coming down like this then you can see that you are going to have to make an adjustment. So this board can really help you with what square is. If you come down over the top you will see that you have to make another adjustment. You may come down over the top with an open face. Each time you will make an adjustment and as you learn you are going to notice that the position when you come down to impact, when I come down to impact notice that my left arm is high and my right arm is low. I don't want to have this position with my left arm low because now I can not square the clubface to the board. I want to look for left arm high and right arm low. That is the way we can work on a square clubface.
