Golf Tips - Understanding Golf Swing Alignment

By America's Favorite Golf Schools

 

Poor alignment is the single most destructive area for players of all levels, when it comes to taking the game from the practice range to the golf course. This means alignment is extremely important for you as a beginner - so don't put it on "the back burner" of your learning priorities.

There are two main elements to be considered when lining up a golf shot. First and foremost is the target line, the line that the golf club is actually on. This is determined simply placing your golf club so that the head is in line with where you want the ball to travel. Secondly the stance line, also known as the body line, should run parallel to the target line. Make sure your feet, knees, arms, and shoulders are aligned. In order to make excellent shots consistently, you must pay close attention to where each part of your body is. 

Once you are properly aligned with your stance line parallel to your target line you are ready to take your shot.
