The conventional golf swing instructions is to train students to manipulate their golf clubs during their golf swings in an attempt to square the face of their clubs on an on line swing path at impact with the ball.
The very proposition of golf swing instructions to teach players to manipulate the club during the golf swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact to hit a straight golf shot only goes to show that the clubface was not square at the beginning of the golf swing.
This type of instruction is completely flawed because no one knows the alignment and swing path of the clubface at the completion of the setup proceedings.
Thus , it is almost impossible to know how to manipulate the clubface during the golf swing to contact the ball squarely and on an on line swing path to hit a golf ball straight without knowing to what alignment and swing path the clubface had rotated at the completion of the pre-swing proceedings. That is to say, did the alignment and swing path of the clubface rotate to a hook, push, slice, pull, push-slice, pull-hook or straight ball flight alignment at final address to the ball?
The instant you assume a conventional overlapping, interlock ing or baseball style of grip, your wrists will rotate your clubface to an effective open alignment (irrespective of how it may appear) and the swing path of your clubface will rotate to an out-to-in path, This means a slice ball flight alignment at this point.
However, the slice ball flight alignment at this point of the setup routine is not locked-in, meaning any body movement after the initial grip is completed will rotate the alignment and swing path of the clubface to a different ball flight such as to a hook, push, pull, push-slice or pull-hook ball flight alignment.
Rarely will the alignment and swing path rotate to a straight ball flight alignment at the completion of the setup proceedings.
Thus, the the alignment and swing path of the clubface is unknown at the completion of the setup routine.
So how is an instructor to know how to coach a golfer to manipulate his or her club during the golf swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact on a swing path that matches the target line to produce a straight golf shot?
The truth of the matter is they don’t know. Therefore, the conventional golf swing lessons instruction is unreliable.
This too is the reason the conventional golf swing instructions of teaching golf is so flawed. There is no reliable way to coach a student using the manipulative golf method of instruction to square the alignment and swing path of the clubface at impact.
