Video Golf Tip | Clubface Alignment
By Brent Franklin

Hi, I am Brent Franklin with McGetrick Golf Academy here in Denver, Colorado. What I want to talk to you about today is clubface alignment. One thing that I see amateurs have problems with, particularly when they are practicing, is they do not really know how to line the clubface up properly. This happens even with some of the best professionals, we get used to looking at a clubface a certain way and we are not always checking it to make sure it is correct. This could really cause a lot of swing problems too. If you have the clubface continually shut or open it forces you to do different things in your golf swing to get the ball back on your target line. A really simple and effective way to check this all the time is to use a board or use something that you can align the ball to. Take a board and just lay it down where it is aimed at your target, and once you set the ball up in here and once the target line is determined to where you want to hit the ball, all you do now is basically set the bottom of the face perpendicular to the edge of the board so that it is at a 90 degree angle. This is really important when you are practicing too because it helps develop good habits. So set a board down on your target line, or a club or anything, and then set the bottom of the face to where it is perpendicular to that board to know that you are straight at your target. This will help you develop better habits with your game and hit better shots.

Eliminate Tension in the Swing Practice your swing by starting at the finish so that you release through impact and complete your swing properly
Proper Pivot Positions Since your body is bent over more in the one plane swing the shoulder plane resulting from the body pivot should be pointing to the ground just outside the golf ball.
Golf Swing Tempo and Rhythm To develop a consistent and repeatable swing every club in your bag should have an identical tempo and rhythm, tempo is the rate of speed from start to finish of the swing while rhythm is the acceleration and deceleration of the golf club
