How Can I Use The Thomas Golf Alignment Guide To Check My Swing Positions In My Golf Follow ThroughThe Thomas Golf alignment guide is an extremely useful aid to golfers. Initially, it helps you to aim the club face correctly at your target. Having the line on the top of the club head makes it much easier to aim the club face as you simply have to point the line at your target.




You can then use the alignment guide to help you create the correct body alignment that you require. When you aim the club face correctly, you then need to set up your address position so that you are parallel to the target line. This is much easier with the Thomas Golf alignment guide as you can visibly see the line to position your feet, knees, hips and shoulder to.

However, you can also use the alignment guide to check the position of the club face as you swing the club head around you. The club face is 85% responsible for shot direction and accuracy, so if you understand the position that you need to achieve with the club face to ensure that it is aiming at the target through impact, then you will improve your swing and your shot accuracy and you will hit the ball closer to your target and reduce the number of shots that you are taking when you are out on the golf course.

When you swing the golf club around you, you need to work on keeping the club face square, or aim at, the clubs swing plane. The clubs swing plane is the arc that is created as the club head travels around you and if the club face is aiming correctly to the club heads plane, then as you swing through impact, the club head will travel along the target line and the face will be aiming along the target line. This will then produce a straight golf shot at the target.

Initially, you want to create a visual indicator of your swing plane on your follow through. Take up your address position achieving the correct posture and distance from the golf ball. Take an alignment pole and place it into the ground where the club head is addressing the golf ball. Push it in at an angle to replicate the angle of the shaft of your golf club. Step to the right of this alignment pole so that you now set up about a metre away from the pole – ensure you keep the club head in line with where the pole has entered the ground.

This pole is now the same as your swing plane and you can now use the Thomas Golf alignment guide on the club head to ensure that the club face is moving correctly on your follow through. If you push the club head forward towards the target, it should travel along the target line on the ground and then follow the angle of the alignment pole. As this happens, you want to keep the alignment guide on the club head pointing in the direction of the pole as the club head moves up it and around you. This will really help you to improve your club face position on your follow through. If you maintain the alignment guide pointing in the direction of the pole as you swing the club head around you following the direction of the pole, you will be hitting extremely straight and accurate golf shots.

If you swing through the golf ball and the club head rotates to make the Thomas Golf alignment guide on the head horizontal, then your shots will be missing the target on the left (right handed golfers) as this is showing you that you have closed the club face too much.

Seeing the Thomas Golf alignment guide in a vertical position as you begin your follow through movement indicates that the club face is open and the shots that you hit will fly and miss on the right of the target.
