The one time the club face does not strike the ball is when it is played out of a sand trap.

You should ensure that the club head enters the sand a few inches behind the ball and a good way to practice this is to draw a line in the sand and practice striking the line and splashing out a divot of sand from in front of it with your follow-through.
When you have mastered this skill, place a ball a few inches in front of the line, use the same swing you have practicing and see the ball pop out onto the green and trundle towards the hole.
How close it gets is up to you for you must next learn to vary the speed and strength of your sand shot.
