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).
Although the words setup and alignment are often times used interchangeably, there is a difference. First, setup typically refers to fundamentals at address position. For example, posture, stance, grip, ball position, hand position, and spine angle. All are essential in the recipe to better golf and better alignment.
When the body is setup correctly good alignment is easy and almost a given. What you need is a mirror, alignment sticks or a second pair of eyes.
Today’s video will give you a fool proof practice plan to achieve a better setup and alignment for pin point accuracy.
