What is a square club face? When I was learning how to play golf, we were taught to have the club face toe pointed up on the back swing and toe up on the through swing. This allowed for a lot of rotation of the club face, stall of the hips and body, requiring a lot of timing to be consistent. Ultimately this “old school” drill led to less power for an able body golfer as well as less consistency because we had to rely on the timing of our hands to flip.

Note: everyone has different body limitations and abilities to turn through impact. Some older or less flexible golfers may want it to be toe up like we were taught in the old school. I think it’s important for you to know what a square club face actually is, so you can have a baseline and find your square club face based on how hard you can turn through the ball.

During my life pursuit to become a world class player and coach, I was blessed to play and coach alongside the best minds in golf. PGA Tour winners, major champions, NCAA Championship players and coaches. While coaching with current Oklahoma State Coach Donnie Darr, I learned the importance of “owning your game”.  Anyone can achieve this when given accurate information fo what actually matters and consistent execution to the process.

I will give you the PROCESS, through practical practice plans, drills and exercises. With proper guidance and tools used by PGA Tour professionals, you will know exactly what to work on and when to do it. If a “washed up” teaching professional like myself qualified and competed on the biggest stage of golf, playing less than one round of golf per week, imagine what you could accomplish in your game!
