[blockquote cite=”Garmin”]Tip: The ideal face angle to target angle is 0 degrees unless you’re intentionally trying to do a draw or fade.[/blockquote]

One of the most useful metrics that TruSwing captures is face to target angle. Or angle of your club face and relation to your target path. The direction your clubface points at the start of the swing.

An open clubface indicates how far the clubface is angled away from you. A closed club face indicates how far the clubface is angled towards you.

Another very useful metric that Garmin TruSwing offers is the club path or your club’s horizontal motion from overhead. An In-Out angle indicates your club path moves away from you, while an Out-In angle indicates your club path moves toward you.

Understanding your combination of club path and clubface angle helps you improve the accuracy of your shot. For example, with an In-Out club path and square clubface, you will get a straight draw. With a square club path and clubface angle, you will get a straight shot.

With a closed face angle and In-Out club path, you get a hook. With a closed face angle and straight path, you get a draw.
