This is the 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.
Do you now how the pros shoot such low scores? It's because they have great fundamentals. World class fundamentals...and so can you! Alignment is an absolute key fundamental. It is very difficult to hit shots on target if we are not aimed where we think we are aimed.
How do you practice alignment? First step, is never, ever, ever hit a shot without aiming at a specific target. Always take the time to aim...if you miss, how will you know if your swing was off or just your alignment?
If you have poor aim, you will forced to compensate for it with your swing. It will be subconscious and if you constantly have poor aim then you will constantly make swing compensations.
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 to your target. That makes your swing very inconsistent. When your swing is inconsistent, it becomes very hard to score.
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 properly aligned at your target, yet hit your shot offline, 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. Many players assume a miss if caused by their swing, when it simply could have been alignment.
Please follow the steps in my golf alignment lesson to develop a great routine that will help you get aligned to your target every time. Proper alignment will help lower your scores and make your practice sessions way more productive.
Please remember....NEVER HIT A SHOT WITHOUT AIMING!!!
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.
