Your clubhead position at impact is extremely important. But, having it in the right place in both the backswing and forward upswing is just as critical. That's because the position of the club at impact is directly determined by where it is in your takeaway and backswing. Where the ball ends up is largely based on your follow through to finish and whether or not the clubhead is toe up in the forward catcher's mitt.
If you under-rotate, you're going to end up with a lot of shots that are thin and mostly go to the right. Conversely, if you over-rotate, you are going to start hitting pull hooks because the clubhead is being turned over too much.
It’s all about controlling your forearm rotation. Remember that you want to be toe up on both sides. In your follow through, your thumbs should be at the target and then up and over the shoulder.
Check out the video above to see exactly where your clubhead should be.
Keep it vertical!
P.S. I would like to recognize the American soldiers who gave their lives to protect this country during WWII. 70 years ago today, many landed on the beaches of Normandy and forever changed the course of history. We will always be indebted to their ultimate sacrifice.
