Video Golf Tip | Impact the Center of the Clubface

Hi, I’m Debbie Doniger and I am with the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami, Florida. I am going to give you a great tip on how to monitor whether you are hitting the center of the clubface. One thing that all great golfer and low handicap players do is hit the center of the clubface consistently. If you mis-hit your shots on the toe or heel of the club the result will be that the clubface will turn slightly and send your shots askew. Something that we do at our golf schools is either put impact tape on the clubface or get some spray that can be applied on the clubface itself. Both items are available at most golf stores. What they do is leave a mark where the ball hit the clubface on your swing. Put a ball on a tee and then just take a little half or three-quarter swing and monitor where you hit the ball. The mark on your club should be towards the center of the face. If not then this is probably a major cause of your swing problems. Keep practicing and learn how to make center contact.

Golf Posture and Stance Your posture is determined by your arm swing. If you swing up and down on a two plane swing then you should stand more upright. If you swing your arms around on a one plane swing then stand more bent over on the balls of your feet.
Timing of Motion in the Golf Swing Match the movement of the club with the movement of the body to arrive back at the same point
