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.

Hitting from Deep Rough Use a steeper swing with a slightly open clubface, but make sure you get back on the fairway
Push and Pull Shots If your divot is pointing straight and your ball is going right or left then your shots are off target because your clubface is opened or closed at impact
Chip From Buried Rough When you are buried in deep rough just off the green try this great trick to always get the ball on the putting surface
