Tip of the Week Archive


One of the most common problems for all levels of golfers is poor aim or alignment. Where you are aimed and where you think you are aimed are usually two different things! While practicing at Golf Quest, you can always lay clubs on the ground to aid your alignment, but this is something that cannot be done on the golf course. 

A better way to practice at the range that is allowable on the golf course is to use an intermediate target. Stand several feet behind the ball and determine your target line. Then, pick a spot on that line approximately 3 to 6 feet in front of your ball. This spot can be a divot, a broken tee, debris, discoloration of the turf, etc. When you address the ball, make sure that you align your clubhead to that spot. As you continue your pre-shot routine, refer to the spot every time you look at your target.

Does it work? Next time you see Jack Nicklaus on TV, watch im as he prepares to hit a shot. As he stands over the ball and lifts his head occasionally to look at the target, watch how he first looks a few feet in front of the ball. This has helped him and many other tour pros with their aim and alignment and I'm sure it can help you too!
