Golf Tips Todd Elliott telliott@hideawaybeachclub.org Anyone who reads my articles understands that I believe in the body-swing connection. To constantly keep improving over time, a golfer must strive to improve the body and the golf swing. My experience of doing physical evaluations of students has made it clear to me that the club path is heavily affected by how the body functions. The club path is the path the club head travels to make impact to the golf ball relative to the target. With that being said, the club face angle at impact is king. The club face is especially ...
