This is the Full Swing Golf Alignment Lesson. This lesson is designed to help you aim at your target properly. It's great if you can hit the ball solidly and straight, but if you don't aim well and miss your target by 30 yards...you are really not taking advantage of how well you can hit the golf ball and likely getting into trouble when playing holes like the one pictured here.
Do you now how the pros shoot such low scores? It's because they are unbelievable with their short irons. They rarely miss the green and are usually within 20 feet of the hole, or better yet they are knocking down the flagstick. By doing that they are giving themselves the best opportunity to make the putt and take fewer shots.
When you have a short iron you truly have a scoring club in your hands. But how can you hit these shots close to the hole without great alignment?
Besides, poor aim usually leads to bad changes in your swing. That is because your brain knows you are trying to hit it towards a specific target. If you are not aiming at that target then your brain will try to manipulate your body to make your golf ball go there. That makes your swing very inconsistent. When your swing is inconsistent, it becomes very hard to score. Aiming is critical when it comes to short irons because you should be trying to zero in on the target and hit it is as close to the hole as possible.
In this lesson you will see pictures with strings. Those strings are being used to illustrate how to aim properly. It is also a great way to practice because you will know you are aiming at your target. You can replace the strings with golf clubs. The important thing is to have an aid to help you work on your game.
If you know you are aimed at your target, yet still miss your shot, then you know there is something in your swing or timing that needs to be fixed. You won't be guessing as to what is wrong...setup or swing.
Please follow the steps below to develop a great routine that will help you get aligned to your target every time.
If your arm is pointing at your target then you have most likely set your body up ahead of your club. Remember, you need to set your club down to form your target line so that you can set your body line parallel to it.
Thank you for taking the Full Swing Golf Alignment Lesson for Short Irons. This is a very important lesson for improving and then maintaining your scores. The Golf Alignment Lesson series are not the most exciting lessons, especially compared to working on movements of the golf swing, but they are lessons that should be reviewed at least once a month during your golf season. We can all slip out of position if we are not paying attention...and if we do we will not hit the ball as close to the hole as we should.
