How To Line Up Your Tee Shots

By Kevin D. Boehler

Lining up a tee shot is just as important as making a good swing because the ball will go in the direction the body is aligned. Without proper alignment, the best swing in the world will not put the ball in the fairway.

Instructions

Difficulty: Easy
Step 1
Stand behind the golf ball and look at the fairway where the ball should land.
Step 2
Imagine a line from the landing area to the ball.
Step 3
Pick a spot on the ground on the imaginary line a few feet in front of the ball.
Step 4
Set up to the ball and align the club and your body with the spot on the ground.
Step 5
Take one last look at the target and hit the ball over the spot on the ground.

Tips & Warnings

Choose a spot on the ground that stands out so it's easy to remember. A leaf, twig, or other loose impediment works well. This method can be used for every shot on the course, even putting.
