Golf Clubs Create Golf Swings by Rob Camacho

The wrong golf club(s) can influence how you swing. For example: If you are playing a driver with a shaft that is to stiff – you will swing harder to make the golf club work and most likely your golf-ball-flight will be right of target. Also, your balance will favor your back foot because you cannot flex the shaft on your forward-swing in the attempt to “square-the-club-face.”

Here is a list of what players may do to make the golf club work with a golf shaft too stiff:

1. Player may aim left to “play” slice, fade, push, and push-slice
2. Player my change his/her grip (hand placement) to a closed-face-grip also known as a “strong-grip”
3. Player may close the club-face at address
4. Player may play the ball too far forward at address
5. Player may “roll-the-hands” prior to impact to close the club-face
6. Player may “over-swing” in the attempt to create power and golf-club-head-speed
7. Player may aim right of target to try to hook the ball
