What are some of the best drills to improve hitting the ball on the center of the clubface?
Not so much a drill but something i do with my driver.
Tee up your ball and address it and if your club has a central marking on the top you would automatically set that point up on what looks like the center of the ball, now what to do is keep the driver in the exact shaft angle and somehow look at your ball position to driver face from behind, you will see that the central marking is almost pointing to inside of the ball "the left of the ball when standing behind". What i do now is when i address the ball my central marking is sitting at what looks like the 1 O'Clock position, im not saying this is how it should be done but it works for me and i never hit it off the toe
