Video Golf Tip | Find Your Aim and Alignment

Most golfers feel like aim is their number one problem, but really it is hitting the golf ball straight. It’s hard to find the correct aim if you have curvature in your golf ball because if you slice the golf ball it will slice more with your driver than it will with your 9-iron, and then aiming becomes very difficult. Provided you hit the ball pretty straight, then obviously aiming is probably the most important thing there is in golf. Here is a little tip on how you can work on it. Put two clubs down, one on your feet and one along the ball line. Try to line up your feet, knees, hips, shoulders, eyes and arms all parallel to the left of your target line. I talk about two things when I talk about aim; I talk about aim and alignment. Alignment is making sure that all your body is coordinated: feet, knees, hips, shoulders, eyes and arms. The most important in that group are your eyes, shoulders and arms. Getting them aligned up so that everything is coordinated well, parallel to the left of your target. Once you have your alignment, then you can find your aim. Turn your alignment so that you are parallel to the left with your body and right on it with your clubface. The bottom edge of your clubface should aim directly to your target. That is how you find your aim, and that is how you find your alignment.

Tension and Pressure On tough shots don't let tension and pressure ruin your frame of mind, create a line of commitment away from the ball where you do your work before you swing
Two-Plane Downswing A two plane swing requires you to start your downswing with a hip bump forward and then arms pulling down, which relies a lot on having good timing
How Back Leg Works In Swing The roll of the right leg in the swing is very misunderstood in golf, it is extremely important for control and distance, as the club comes into impact the right knee, foot and ankle roll in and at the finish the right thigh should catch up with your left thigh
