Video Golf Tip | Target Line Perspective

One of the most critical aspects for you to play this game well is the to hit your ball down your target line. Now that is different than you aim line for this specific reason, most players try to pick out something along their target line, what we are talking about here is this vertical stick here which is the umbrella. Your job is to hit the ball over that line, so through impact can you deliver the club that is going to send the ball right over that target line that you have established. What makes it challenging is that we are standing to the side of the golf ball. Because we are standing to the side of the golf ball the tendency is that we see this in a different perspective. Take an umbrella, put it out here, or an old club shaft, and practice seeing if you can hit the ball over that line. At first that umbrella stick is going to look more to the right than your perceived target, and that is a good thing. Keep practicing with it because your tendency will be to revert back and look too far to the left. Let me show you what it would look like with a shot. That is what the best players in the world do. They are able to hit it over that target line that they see is to the right of what their perception is. Give this a shot I know it will help your game.
