What Is The Best Alignment For Straight Golf Drives (Video)

What is the best alignment for straight golf drives? Now when you’re on the tee and you’re looking down the fairway it’s a lot easy to actually hit your target if you’re confident with the way you are set up, and you’re confident with the way you’ve aligned both the club and the body. Now to make sure you get that right alignment, just follow this quite simple and quite accurate routine to get you aligned up correctly.

Now the first thing you want to be doing is selecting your target, so if it’s a very wide fairway or a very narrow fairway select a point of the fairway or a point beyond the fairway that you can clearly see in your mind, draw a line back from that target to the ball, and then just try and select something in front of the ball. This is an intermediate target and an intermediate target makes it a lot easier to align the club face. If you try and align the club face at your distant target it can become a lot more inaccurate. So just pick something in front of the ball which sits on that target line. Now from there every ball that you kind of play and you can also get some kind of accessories which help you draw or align on the ball, that every ball you play will have a logo or will have alignment aids. Get those alignment aids or that logo pointing at the intermediate target. So now the ball, the target, and the alignment, and the final target are all pointing in the same direction. Now all you need to do from there is get that club settled behind the ball, use the alignment aid on the top which you’ll find on most drivers pointing at the ball which is now pointing at your intermediate target, which is now pointing at your eventual target. So all that section of your setup is perfectly aligned up now what you need to make sure of is that the body is lined up as well. Now with the body alignment you don’t actually want to be pointing it at the target, you want it parallel to your target line. So your target line is over here and you got your feet and your hips and your shoulders all lined up opposite and at right angles to that target line. This is a parallel alignment and what you want to be seeing and what you want to be thinking about the easiest way to do it is that of a train track. So on the outer rail you have the ball, on the inner rail is where you stand and it’s running in straight parallel lines down towards where you want the ball to go. So you’ve got the alignment with the club, you’ve got the feet set together to begin with and then separated, parallel to your target line, and from there knowing your fully – knowing you’re fully lined up and you’re correctly aligned you can have a nice full confident swing at the ball. Not bad. So if you want to get perfectly aligned go through that routine, use that technique on the course and on the drive range to practice, and hopefully you will see some straighter shots.
