Why You Hit slices with Closed Face at Address
I see players who set their clubface closed at address in order to avoid slice. From this position, you should be able to hit a hook.
By setting the clubface closed at address, you can avoid the face from opening at impact.
But some players still slice with closed clubface at address.
That's because they are trying to hit it straight even though they set their clubface closed to start with.
To hit it straight, you need to have your face pointing at the target at impact. If you try this, you will be opening your clubface during the downswing.
Remember that the clubface is closed at address. If the clubface points at the target when it strikes the ball, it means that it was rotated open during the downswing.
This move will put slice spin on the ball.
If you closed the face at address, you should try to return the face to its original position at impact.
