“Understanding and Working with a Player’s Squaring Mechanism”
by John Randle; Teaching Professional, The Golf Performance Project
Each golfer strives to have a square clubface at impact but may take a different route to get there. Instructors will often see high-handicappers leaving the face open in the backswing, which requires compensatory movements to return the face to square when contacting the ball. This workshop will help illustrate the mechanisms players use to return to square at impact and how to work with each individual’s tendencies to encourage a more effective move back to the ball.
