I have written about alignment before and cannot stress how important it is. Often times in lessons, golfers ask why they are experiencing subtle or not so subtle misses. Yet, ball striking remains solid and their swing and setup remain unchanged. Generally the answer is setup and alignment.
The worst thing we can do is blame missed shots on our golf swing when your alignment is off. So before you go making drastic changes based upon the most current Golf Digest, read some of our previous articles on alignment sticks and watch our video (Setup and Alignment 101 For Lower Scores).
Ahhhh, golf grips. Likely the most overlooked and under appreciated part of club fitting. Most of you golfers out there think you have been through a club fitting of some sort. However, did you ever get to the grip fitting part? If so, did the club fitter ask if you had a grip preference? Did the technician measure your hand for size or ask what size glove you wear. Did you have an opportunity to see, touch, feel, test different types of grips or grips sizes? If you answered no to any of the above then you went through a basic fitting. When I say basic I mean you weren’t fitted properly. Take a few minutes to read the Q&A on grips and hopefully this you can this this information to lower your scores.
