Use a dozen-golf ball box or even a head cover for this tip. Set up with the toe of the club about 3 inches from the box. Hit balls and note where the impact is. If the impact is farther away from the box or you hit the box, make adjustments in distance at address and swing. As you get better, move closer to the box to where you are only an inch away. Simply trying to hit where you start will go miles in helping you learn how to use the club and clubface at impact.
