Aiming is a critical aspect of hitting the optimal golf shot. Sounds obvious, right? Well, it’s actually a skill many amateurs struggle to develop.
So how do we practice the art of aiming? One simple drill involves using an alignment stick to check whether you’re seeing the target squarely at address. Slide the stick behind your heels and then place your club parallel to where the ball sits in your stance. If the alignment stick and the club aren’t parallel, you’re set up to miss your target. Repeat this drill during your practice sessions to train your eyes to see squarely. You’ll be on your way to mastering the art of aiming.
