Video Golf Tip | Build A Perfect Practice Station
By Katherine Marren

You may have noticed when you have gone to the practice range that a lot of people practice with clubs all over the place and on the ground. That is a great idea but let me show you how to build a perfect practice station, this is important. What you want to do is put a club on your target line about three feet in front of the ball. Right on the target line. Then I am going to add another club three feet behind the ball, again on the target line. by building your practice station right on the target line you are going to be able to aim and align correctly every time. When I place the club behind the ball I can easily see that the face is aimed down the line, towards the target. I can also see that the leading edge of the club is perpendicular to the target line. as I set into the ball my feet are going to be parallel to the target line as well. So my feet are aligned parallel to the target line and my clubface is looking at the target. This is a great way to practice and feel what proper aim and alignment feels like. Often when we go to the range if we aim to the right and we look at the target we get the sensation of the shoulder looking at the target and we think that is correct. So by practicing with your station when you are aimed correctly you will get the sensation that your left shoulder is to the left of the target which is correct. The club is aimed right down the line and now it is going to be really easy to hit a shot right at the target. Build a perfect practice station and your aim, alignment and scores will get better.
