How can we hit the target with poor aim?  This question would apply to anything with a target, but in this case, we’re talking golf!  

I would have to guess that at least 75% of the students I teach aim incorrectly.  Why is this?  Because we stand to the side of the ball and our eyes have what we call “binocular vision,” we see things from behind.  Most sports with a target are played “face-on,” but in golf, we play “sideways-on.”  So the next time you go to the range, use some alignment sticks the way you see in this video, and I’m sure you will start to see straighter shots!

Ted Norby, Director of Instruction for the National University Golf Academy, explains how to use golf alignment sticks to help improve your golf aim. To discuss this golf tip with other golfers and share your own, leave a comment below. We look forward to your feedback.
