When it comes to playing golf, understanding the game is key. Mike Malaska has taught so many students and golfers that the game is not the swing, or putting or even your short game. The game is purely a clubface and a ball. The object is to put the clubface on the ball, on a path, to make the ball do what you want it to do. Here, Malaska goes in depth on what actually controls the clubface and if you can understand this aspect of your swing, you will be able to understand the game.
In conclusion, Mike Malaska emphasizes the importance of understanding the game of golf and controlling the club face. He says that the player should practice making the ball curve to the left, curve to the right, and hit it straight. He also emphasizes the importance of training the hands to control the face and cites Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as examples of players who understand the importance of the hands in the golf swing.
