The clubface position can be altered at address and at impact in order to shape the direction of the ball for a golf shot. It can also be adjusted in its follow through position – after impact – and on the way to get there. These modifications affect what kind of spin will be delivered to the shot and are explained.
The way the golf club crosses the target line at impact – as well as before and after – is defined as the swing path and it can vary across three different types. They are explained.
A swing that can be defined as on plane is one where the line formed by the straight left arm at the top of the swing crosses the line formed by the spine at a 90 degree angle. It is the default swing plane and the deviations from that standard position are detailed within.
