I have to agree with Butch Harmon when he says that golfers have the most crooked aim of players in any sport.

In all my years of teaching, I have seen more mistakes made with clubface aim & body alignment than almost any other issue. And it happens with all skill levels, even single-digit handicappers!

What happens when you set the clubface closed at the address or when you set up with the face open?

A series of miscues that result in incorrect ball position, grip, etc., plus an undesirable ball flight!

My students will tell you that I work with them on aim & stance, religiously. Alignment sticks aid greatly when I’m teaching golfers to line up square to the target.

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!
