How many of you are convinced that you are hitting it offline because
of the club face not being square at impact? Maybe you're hooking
it or maybe you're slicing it.
I want to give you a little golf swing lesson that I think will
help you a lot.
Grip the golf club like you normally would, and put it on the ground.
Now raise it up in the air and make half a golf swing, or really,
all the way back, and then stop.
Now, look at that club face. That club face should be perfectly
Now, here s a golf swing lesson in case you grip it off to the right
a little bit. Alright. Now, maybe you re hooking the ball, but you
re not paying attention to your grip.
Now that club face is closed, and that right there would tell me
that you need to change your grip. Maybe you re slicing the ball
and not paying close attention to my grip.
Okay, the club face is open. Then I would put it on the ground and
turn it a little bit until it s square.
And if it s too far over to the right, put it on the ground and
move your grip to the left.
This controls the face. Ninety percent of the time that s the reason
the face isn t square.
So, if you're convinced that you're slicing and hooking and it has
to do with the grip, the golf swing lesson is that all you have
to do is hold the club in the air and take a little half-practice
swing and see if the face comes back square.
Now, let me tell you what role the head plays because I have a golf
instruction tip that is equally as important. You should not keep
your head down throughout the entire swing. That would be just as
wrong as if you were lifting your head up in the downswing.
So, there s a very fine combination of what the head should do.
So, here we go.
As the golf club swings back, the head hasn t moved at all and your
eyes are on the back of the golf ball. Now, in the downswing, as
the arms unwind and the left hip starts to get out of the way, the
golf club s going to swing to the bottom of the hip.
At that point, the speed of the right arm is going to start to pull
So, the speed of the arms and hands are what pull you up and around.
So, you can keep your head down as long as you like without forcing
it down, and then the speed of the arms and hands coming past the
golf ball turn you and pull you through.
So, here is the golf instruction tip again, keep your eye on the
back of the ball, swing your arms up and down, and let the speed
of the arms turn your head as you turn through.
Thanks, and I hope that helped you.
