Having a stronger left hand grip (assuming you are a right hand player) may be a quick fix to stop blocking your shots to the right

In terms of coaches, many good ones depending on your location
eg Allen Kelly - Laguna,  Justin Han - Seletar,  Chris Marriott - Raffles etc
Do a quick search

I'm biased towards the people who have coached me so caveat emptor.

Allen Kelly(Laguna) and Justin Han(Seletar).


Other coaches I've had contact with: Dino Kwek(Punggol)
Son's school coach: Chang Ren Kiat(OCC)

All of them should do a good job for you.
However it also depends on where you stay/work etc.

I know you have mentioned club face open ... but your "straight to the right" shot could also be caused by a path that is a bit too inside to out .... not just an open clubface

the "fix" depends very much on the correct diagnosis

agree with the rest ... get diagnosed properly by a professional ...

An open face (pointing right) perpendicular to the swingpath that's too inside-out (again pointing right and in the same direction of the face) equals a straight shot to the right (a push).

Seeing a coach to correct the problem is the best long term solution to better golf if you are willing to invest in the time, money, and pain of overhauling your swing while momentarily playing even worse golf.

A stronger grip is a possible fix, but because of timing issues in the release, beware of the hook that might eventually rear its ugly head (face left and swingpath right). It's a nightmare I had to go through when I strengthened my grip and didn't know if my shots were going to end up left or right, I had no idea where to aim to allow for a miss on both sides.

The small consolation here is that you're consistently pushing your shots right when you miss, and you can use that knowledge to your advantage by aiming and aligning towards the left side of the fairway instead of centre. If you hit it straight, you'll end up on the left side of the fairway, even better if you push it right, as you'll end up in the centre.

50% straight or 50% push, you've found 100% short grass either way, all without changing anything in your swing, just the mindset of where you aim and align. 

Take your pick of which you're most comfortable with.  Very Happy

Sounds like a Push Slice (or shank??) ... Your swing plane is probably wrong ... Or perhaps you did not do a complete shoulder turn before doing a downswing ...

Push ( sometimes with some slice ) was and is still one of my swing issues as well, but is much better nowadays. Since you dont slice, i rckon you dont have an outside-in swing (unless you somewhow compensate perfectly!). Just like some bros mentioned here, you are probably turning your hips way too fast for your upper body to catch up. I have been advised previously by my pro to keep my chest facing the ball (almost square) at impact, while my hips are opening up towards the target. Its produces better ball striking. Its a simple rule to follow, but a touch act to execute! Why dont u try doing half or 3/4 swing to slowly diagnose your issue (that is if you are not planning to visit a pro)?

I have the same problem as you! Short of going to a coach.. I aim to the left.. and expect the ball to go right. My reasoning is that distance is not suffered (very comfortable off white).. ball flight is ok (means it is taking off most of the time) so I just leave it.

This is a good video to fix push slice ... It helps if you have similar symptom as described ...

If you guys watch jhan's YouTube, it's pretty much conclusive right? Face angle right and swing path same angle as where face is pointing = straight ball flight right. Your face points right and ball starting line is right. If you address straight, you are swinging in to out to the angle close or same to your ball's starting line.
This shot is called a "push"
If no side spin then swing path = face angle.

there are quite a few ways to push the ball so not easy to say which is the cause.

"I know it is my club face open but dun konw how to avoid i|t."

I don't think it's your open club face. If it's open club face the ball will slice. I believe it's more to do with body alignment. Smile
