How Should I Aim My Hybrid Golf ClubsHow you aim a hybrid golf club will directly affect the direction that you see the golf ball fly and therefore the accuracy level that you are able to achieve. Before you hit any golf shot, it is imperative that you aim the club correctly so work on achieving the following steps to ensure that you do this and that you are as accurate as you can be.




In simple terms, the golf ball will be struck off the club face at a right angle to it. To aim a hybrid correctly, you need to set the club face at a right angle to the target. The best way to achieve this is to stand directly behind the golf ball so that you are able to look over the ball and then at the target. When standing behind the ball, looking at the target, draw a line back from the target to the golf ball in your mind. This is the line that you need to set the club face at a right angle to, in order to aim your golf club correctly. Thomas Golf hybrids make this extremely easy to do as they have an alignment line on the top of them. You are able to simply position this line on the top of the hybrid so that it points directly along the target line and at the target.

The club is now aiming correctly. You may also find it really useful to pick a spot out in front of the golf ball but on the target line, to use to help you aim. There will always be something available to use, such as a divot, a twig, a different colour patch of grass, when you are out on the golf course. Pick something about two feet in front of the ball, on the target line and then position the club face at a right angle to this. It is much easier to aim correctly at something only two feet away than something 450 yards away.

You can practise aiming the golf club at home by placing another golf club or an alignment pole down on the ground to represent the target line. Position the club face next to the end of the club/pole and set it at a right angle to the line created on the ground. You now have the club face aimed correctly. If you have a Thomas Golf hybrid, position the club head so that the alignment line on the top of the club head is in line with the club/pole on the ground.

If the club face is not at a right angle to the target but is turned more to the left, then the golf ball will fly to the left of the target if a neutral swing is made and the player does not make any compensatory movements.

If the club face is square to the right of the target, rather than square to the target, then this aim will make the golf ball fly to the right of the target unless the player makes a compensatory movement and manipulates the club face more towards the target line.

One of the key elements to all of todays leading professional players pre-shot routine is to aim. If you just set up to the golf ball without aiming correctly then you will hit the ball in that direction and you do not know what that direction is. You need to strike the golf ball towards the target, not just anywhere, if you want to play your best golf.
