Short Game - Understanding the Design of Your Clubhead and Clubface
The Clubhead - Design
Loft - this dictates the angle of flight (trajectory) of the ball.
Leading edge - cuts into the ground when taking a divot.
Bounce/sole - measured in degrees, this limits how deep the club digs into the ground or how it slides along the surface.
Shaft - the shaft angle set at address and created at impact has a significant influence on strike, ball flight and control.
The Clubface - Aim
Aim refers to the position of the clubface at address and again at impact. This training aid exaggerates the commonly referred to positions so beginners are clear what square, open and closed mean in relation to the club face.
Square to target
Open to target - to the right
Closed to target - to the left
