It is true. And given a path of whatever, a face that's "open" to it will produce a cut. It's not a bad article - it's just one I don't think most golfers need (since most golfers hit cuts or slices already).
The path only has to be "out to in" relative to the face. Which is the same as saying face open to path.
Again, for a year or so now, we're trying to use words the way they tend to be heard:
Relative to target we'll say right or left.
Relative to path we'll say open or closed.
So to hit a playable draw (for a RHG), there are two ways to say it:
1) The clubface is right of the target, with the path farther to the right.
2) The clubface is right of the target, but closed to the path.
Reverse for a playable fade.
Thanks for clarifying what he meant. That's not how I read it, I thought he was saying open club face is a fade... should have thought about relative to path.
Got confused by his meaning.
