Open & Halfway Down

To improve club face control, there are a few key checkpoints to look at when shooting slow motion video using the "down-the-line" view. Players who are prone to hitting big pulls or blocks should use these to determine when the club face is becoming too shut or open. Most notably, we want to make sure that the face is relatively square at shaft parallel in the downswing; this will allow for a timing-free release and straighter, more consistent shots. However, if the face is considerably closed or open at this point, be sure to take a look how the wrists are moving in the take-away and backswing. Often times, the feeling of a more "bowed" or "cupped" wrist at the top is all that is needed to remedy any clubface issues that manifest themselves here.
