The direction in which the clubface looks is the most important of the four impact elements that determine the behavior of every shot you hit. JOHN JACOBS • When putting, the ball will always launch in the direction the putter face is aimed at impact – not in the direction the putter head is moving at impact. Therefore, to launch your putts on your intended aim-line, your putter face needs to be square to that line at impact. • When you don’t make contact in the center of the clubface, the clubface will turn at impact and less energy will be transferred to the ball. The ball will travel slightly offline and shorter than expected.
