A very important tip that I bet very few people care about
Oh yes. Alignment is the most important lesson in golf yet few people care. I hope all the members here do. They should.

You referred me to this tip from my question about club face alignment difficulties. It was very helpful. I had been making my intermediate target too far out.
I assume also that one should align the club face before securing their grip, correct?
Also, I have historically set my hands too far forward, which tends to force the face open. When I get it to square at that point then realize my hands need to be back even with the ball, this would force the face into a closed position when I pull my hands back, correct? Not a good situation for someone that tends to hit pull-hooks.
Thanks for getting me to the right tip.

Yes, you need to align the clubface then build around your club.

Too far forward would force it right if you had the face open. If not, you would actually hook it.

Yes, you need your hands even with the ball. Not sure why would you would think this would close the face going back. You are not pulling anything back. You are setting the club then moving your shoulders to move the letter Y between the club and arms back. There is not power in it.

You are pull hooking it because you are hitting with the arms. This is tilting you left in the downswing. You need to stay behind it more.

I would try it. It worked for me. I didn’t have a choice in triggers though. I only heard of that one so I did it. I dug in and fired hard. I am not messing around with this action. So you need to do it hard and fast.
