Any Tips or Training Aids for a Too Shut Clubface?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Going into this year, I have finally started too stop coming too much from the inside. But now that I am coming more on plane, I cannot stop sending the ball way left. It looks like a pull hook, but my path is still in to out. I know this means it is a clubface issue, but does anyone have any drills or training aids for this? I think this has always been in my swing, but now that I am on plane it is no longer needed to get the ball to go straight. Thanks in advance!

The “Hanger” is a popular device used to help with keeping the face square.

Give it a shot.

Is the problem clubface or alignment?   Maybe you are setup left of have the face closed at setup.     Need to confirm what the problem is before you actually try to make adjustments.

Develop feel for the club head.  Do back and forth (non-stop) practice swings concentrating on the club head. They don't have to be full swings, 9:00 to 3:00 swings work fine.  Start with the club square, then turn it in so it is closed, then open it. Each should feel different.  Do with your eyes closed to really feel the difference.  It shouldn't take too long to be able to feel when you are swinging with the club head closed.  

 

Malaska recommends this as a warm up drill for players of all levels.

Agree with CNosil. Start with the simple fixes and work your way from there.

Are your grips the right size? Thicker grips will help calming your hands down and, thus, cause less clubface rotation. Might be an additional help to the drills already requested.
