Video Golf Tip | Tee Box Alignment Work
By Brent Franklin

Hi, I am Brent Franklin with the McGetrick Golf Academy here in Denver, Colorado and what I want to talk to you about today is how you get comfortable on the golf course and how do you keep practicing good habits even when you are on the golf course. Suppose you are hitting tee shots and you keep missing it right or left and you cant figure out what the reason is and somebody stands behind you and says you lined up 50 yards to the right or 40 yards to the left. This is just one really simple way to help you develop good habits to become a better player. Every tee box has a little outline or edge where the grass is a little shorter. You can stand behind this edge, look at where this grass is going and then when you put your feet on this line you can pretend that you are hitting your ball out pretty close to along this edge and see how that feels when you are making a practice swing. Does it feel right or does it feel left to you? What you want to do is always develop good habits. Get in a routine where you are always checking your alignment and making sure you are lined up properly. Use little things like this. There are also other things like when the mowers cut the tee sometimes there are mower stripes that you can use on the tee as well that can help you line up. It does not mean that they have to be lined up down the middle of the fairway because sometimes the tees are pointed right or left, don't fall into that trap that happens to a lot of us. But use them for practice. Pretend you are standing on the line, stand behind it so you know where that line is going and set up and make a few practice swings at the imaginary target and see how that feels. If it feels right or left to you keep making some practice swing until it starts to feel more comfortable. There is nothing in the rule book that says you can't do this and this is a great way to work on your alignment while you are playing.
