Hitting The Center Of The Golf Club Face

Instruction

Hitting The Center Of The Clubface

 

Until the past several years we really didn’t know how important hitting your golf ball on the center of the golf club face really was.  Through the magic of technology, we now know that off even as much as a dimple can make a difference in the amount of spin and distance that your golf ball goes.  In the video below Mike shares with you an easy trick to find out exactly where you hit your golf shots on the club face.

Now that we know where we hit our shots, how do you fix it?

Here are a few common fixes to your problems:

If you tend to hit the ball out on the toe of the club you are too far away from it at address, your clubs may be to short for you, or you pull your arms in at impact closer to your body at impact.

If you hit the ball closer to the heel of the club you made be too close to the ball at address, your clubs may be too long for you,  or your club path may bring the club farther away from you than you where at address.

Make minor adjustments to help you find the sweet spot!
