Golf Alignment Tip
Although a simple part of the set up to get correct you'll be surprised at how many golfers I see that struggle to align themselves correctly at address. In many cases for most golfers it seem like an optical illusion when setting up, thinking they are aligned correctly when in fact they are quite someway off. A consistent golf swing can only be achieved from the correct alignment.
If you get this important part of your set up incorrect then your swing and direction of shots could go drastically wrong! Not only can poor alignment lead to poor direction, accuracy and curvature on your ball flight but it can also lead to many faults during your swing.
It is not technically difficult to align correctly at address; in fact it is so simple I think it is mainly overlooked by many golfers. During the set up your feet should be parallel to your target line and in turn your body, shoulders, hips and knees should all be in line with your feet. Follow these easy steps to achieve your correct alignment:
1. Imagine a train track. The first half of the train track runs through your ball all the way to your target (this is your ball to target line). The second part of the track should be parallel to your ball to target line.
2. When practicing place two clubs down on the ground to show your ball to target line and to enable you to check your feet and body alignment. Your club face should be at a perfect right angle to your target line. Your feet and body should be aligned parallel left to your target line.
3. Place a club along your shoulder line. Check your feet and shoulders are in line. If in a correct position your shoulders and feet should be aligned slightly left of target.
Sounds so simple but many golfers get it wrong. Remember your feet and body alignments should point parallel left of your target line, not at your target directly.
