If you're a golfer that likes to milk the club before your takeaway, there's a chance your clubface could be opening or closing without you even knowing. This can create an interesting dilemma because you won't know why you're missing your target.

Once you grip the club with a square clubface, it's my recommendation that you keep that grip in place and avoid milking the club too much. I'm willing to bet that it will alleviate a lot of missed targets for most golfers.

Keep it vertical!
