As a golf instructor, it always amazes me how little care most amateurs take on their alignment.  

Over 50% of the golfers I teach aim incorrectly.  If you are not aimed correctly, you body will make compensations to try and get the ball on line, and that is how bad habits in the golf swing are developed.  This is not hard folks, get some alignment sticks and learn to aim.  You won’t be sorry! My credo is “Focus on repetition with feedback.” Without repetition, you cannot make the movement second nature, and without feedback, you don’t know whether you are doing it correctly.  Do this and you will always get better!

Stance is so important in the golf swing and Jason Day explains how he practices a consistent base accompanied by precision alignment. His use of alignment stick and training aids helps build motor patterns so it is ingrained when he reaches the course.

A lot of students who have tried my alignment method from an earlier tip still seem to have difficulty lining up correctly.

Most right-handed golfers tend to aim to the right and lefties to the left. This is because we tend to look “over” our shoulder rather than parallel to it. Here is a sure-fire way to set up correctly.

I am using the tree in the middle of our range as the target. Stand behind your ball and focus your eyes on the target.

Walk towards the ball, still keeping your eyes on the target.

Look down just long enough to place the club behind the ball…

…and immediately look back at your target before you start moving your body.

Now, while still looking at the target, place your feet in their proper position. You will now be aligned perfectly to your target.

Try this on the range first just to get comfortable. Use it on the course, and your setup will be flawless every time!
