Today’s topic is alignment at address. If we understand that the golf club moves from the inside back to the inside and we want our body lines aligned to that so our baseline here is represented by this alignment stick and our target line is represented by the string on the ground. As I walk in I would like to get my body line parallel left of my target line. The target line is where we want our golf ball to end way down the fairway.
To support the alignment, do you have the ability to rotate the upper body without the hips moving? If your upper body doesn’t have the ability to separate, oftentimes you could change your upper body to get into proper position, and your pelvis kind of goes along with it. What we’re looking for is independent control of both upper body rotation and lower body rotation. We call it dissociation. you can call it whatever you want but once you have those movements down alignment gets a lot easier the game becomes a lot easier, and you enjoy it more.
