RE: Impact ...
As the club face is turned away slightly in the address it should be turned away still more as the club is drawn back, and this turning should continue as far as you can to the top of the swing.

Certain finishes on a club face (e.g., milling, brass-blasting) can also increase backspin. Balance Point The point where a shaft’s weight is evenly distributed in both directions when rested on a single point.
If you chase the ball with your body you'd better have good feel for the club face. 2.

A good golf club lie angle creates a larger sweetspot - the portion of the club face where you can hit the ball well - and therefore the iron or wood is more forgiving. Ergo: you can make more distance. No, I'm not going to be too technical.
The number-one fundamental for proper direction is having the club face square at impact. As I mentioned in the grip section, your grip pressure is crucial to maintain the same pressure throughout the stroke.
To control the clubface via the left hand it must be trained to execute whatever action you want the club face to do.
3. Close and Layback
Each of these motions produce different trajectories but all give straight away flight.

Tending the Flag

It is normally in the centre of the golf club face and if struck by this point of the golf club a ball will normally
travel farther than with any other part of the club.
Off-center-- A shot which does not strike contact the center of the club face typically resulting in a poor shot.
offset-- A club type where the head is set behind the club shaft.
Flyer (Flier) - A shot that flies substantially longer than desired, usually as a result of too much grass between the club face and ball. Flyers are more common from the rough than from the shorter fairway grasses.
