How to get more forward shaft lean on impact

Want to know How to get more forward shaft lean on impact? The position of the clubface in the golf swing is such an important thing because if it’s not in the correct place the body will compensate by doing as much as it possibly can to get it pointing at the target on impact. Open and closed clubfaces can have their own problems. If your clubface is open then you will never be able to keep a bent right arm on impact as you will have to extend the right arm early in order to square the clubface up.

How an open club face can prevent a forward shaft lean

When you extend the right arm too early this will then lead to you losing your power and compression on the ball, there is also a very good chance you will shank the golf ball because you are throwing the club head outwards towards the ball.
