Shaping Shots

Beginners and higher handicap golfers are almost always better to adjust their set-up if they need to curve the ball in a different shape than their normal ball flight. The oversimplified method is to aim where you want the ball to start, adjust the club in your hands so the face points where you want to finish and swing where you are aimed. It all comes down to path and clubface and there are a few tricky issues. You actually need to close or open a lofted club more than a straight-faced club.
