Sharpen Your Aim
Learn this simple routine the pros use
olf is hard. Don’t make it any harder by turning good swings into bad results because you’re not aiming properly.
Looking back at the great players,you see lots of di erent swings. But virtually all of these players aimed the same way,
Gstarting behind the ball and picturing where and how they wanted it to y.
Many amateurs get in their stance rst, then look up, see some trouble and move their feet around to try to aim away from it. Or they take one look at the target, then focus all their attention down at the ball.
Try this instead. Stand behind the ball, facing the target, and see the line you want to start your shot on. Pick an intermediate target a few feet in front of your ball, and picture a line from your ball to that target. Then walk in and set your body lines – feet, hips and shoulders – parallel to that line. Over the ball, look from the intermediate target to your real target as you “see” in your mind the shot you want to hit.
I’ll bet you get better results without making a single change to your mechanics. Hank Haney
