Video Golf Tip | Parts of the Golf Club

I do not care what sport you play, you need to understand your equipment, and golf is no different. If you understand your equipment it will work for you instead of against you when it comes time to swinging the golf club. This golf club is made up of three pieces, we have a grip, we have a head, we have a shaft and then we have a face on the head. An easy way to remember this is that we all have a head and a face. A golf club has a head and a face. Why is that important? Because you want to hit the ball on the face of the golf club. The next part that I want to talk about is the bottom of the golf club and I want you to think about your foot. On our foot we have a heel, a toe and a sole. On the bottom of the golf club we have a heel, a toe and a sole. What is so important about that is that when we walk we do not walk with our toe up in the air. When you hit a golf ball you definitely do not want to hit it with the toe of the club up in the air. What you want to do is set the club on the ground with the heel, toe and sole flat on the ground. That is going to set the face up in a good position so that I can hit the face. The only other pieces of the golf club I would want you to understand is the loft of the golf club. It looks like you stepped on the golf club face and bent it backwards, that is called the loft. We will talk about that a little bit more later on. The other part is the lie of the golf club, and that is the angle that is formed where the bottom of the shaft meets the clubhead. So if you look at all the pieces of the golf club that we have discussed, we have a grip, a head, a shaft, a face, a heel, a toe and a sole, we have loft and we have lie. Now just remember, we all have a head and a face. We have a heel, toe and sole. But more importantly remember what you have to do with it.
