Feeling Where the Club Face Is Aimed

This little video from Mike Malaska -- he used to work with the late Jim Flick, among other teachers -- goes through some simple drills and practice techniques for learning to feel which way the club face is pointed at impact.



That's really pretty simple. You can do the "cellphone drill" during spare moments during the day, and you can practice the swing drill using plastic balls in your backyard when you can't get to the range.

One important point here that Malaska mentions at the end: When you practice with a club, swing slowly. That makes it much easier to feel where the club face is pointed because the swing is slow enough for you to recognize where your hands are pointed.

Don't underestimate the importance of simple drills like this. Watch the video several times if necessary to make sure you understand what he's telling you to do. Eye-hand coordination isn't complicated; it just takes repetition over time. If you practice, it will come.
