One of the best golf lessons is to offset your club face to hit a fade.
The reason why this is one of the best golf lessons is you do not have to realign your shoulders to the inside of your target line and manipulate your club during your downswing to hit a fade –as is required when you try to produce a fade conventional golf swing instructions.
The conventional way to hit a fade golf shot requires you to align your shoulders to the inside of your target line, square the face of your club with your target line, swing your club back along your body line and then swing your clubface down your target line on your though swing.
This misalignment/manipulative golf method to hit a fade golf shot is a recipe for disaster.
If you swing the club too much to the inside or outside of your body line, you most likely will produce anything but a fade. you even have the remote possibility of hitting the golf ball straight but the odds are against it.
If you swing your clubface too much to the inside or outside of your target line during your downswing you also are likely to produce anything but a fade.
Although many low handicappers and most professional golfers are able to use this misalignment/manipulative method effectively, it is far too difficult for the average golfer to use with any consistency.
There are several more reliable ways to hit a fade golf shot.
One such innovative golf method about how to hit a fade golf shot is to offset your clubface in a certain manner in relation to your ball during your setup routine. I refer to it as the Jackson Offsetting Fade Technique™.
Here are the golf swing tips to perform the Jackson Offsetting Fade Technique™.
First, identify your directional line, the line on which you want your ball to fly, initially, in order to curve to your target at the end of its ball flight.
Next, address your ball with a comfortable stance and posture. Ensure your shoulders (shoulder line) are aligned parallel with your directional line.
Then, prior to gripping your club, center the sweet spot of your clubface as near as possible to the back of your ball.
Lastly, without moving your feet in any manner, grip your club with either an interlocking, overlapping or baseball (ten fingers) style of grip while the sweet spot of your clubface remains centered as near as possible to the back of your ball.
Complete your grip by ensuring the lifeline of your right hand is squarely and securely docked on your left thumb.
Keep your feet stable—do not move your feet after gripping your club— your head steady and execute a simple golf swing. Do not attempt to manipulate the club in any manner during your golf swing.
Discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and your ball you should observe you ball fading perfectly to your target.
The reason why this offsetting method works is the instant you grip a golf club with either an interlocking, overlapping or baseball (ten fingers) style of grip, your clubface will rotate to an open alignment and your elbow line will rotate to the inside of your target (directional) line to create a fade ball flight alignment.
However, with any foot movement thereafter the clubface will rotate to a different ball flight alignment.
Thus, by centering the clubface directly behind the ball and then gripping the club without any foot movement in the process, the clubface will return to the ball in an open alignment on a path to the inside of your shoulder line when a non-manipulative golf swing is executed.
Once you become comfortable on how to perform the Jackson Offsetting Fade Technique™ you should agree this truly is one of the best golf lessons.
