HOW TO HIT A GOLF BALL STRAIGHT: PERFORM THE JACKSON RELEASE-N-LOCK TECHNIQUE™

how to hit a golf ball straightOne of the best and easiest ways of how to hit a golf ball straight is to perform the Jackson Release-N-Lock Technique™. This is an ideal golf method to hit a straight golf shot.

The reason why this is one of the best and easiest ways to hit a golf ball straight is that the Jackson Release-N-Lock Technique™ locks-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the clubface during the setup proceedings.

When a square alignment and an on line swing path of the clubface is locked-in during the setup proceedings, a straight ball flight alignment correspondingly will be locked-in.

Once a straight ball flight alignment is locked-in, all that remains is to assume a comfortable stance to the ball, center the sweet spot of the clubface   as near as possible to the back of the ball and align the shoulders parallel with the target line.

If then the left heel remains planted and a simple golf swing is executed, the ball will fly on a straight path in the direction of the target, discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between the stance and the ball.

Here is how to perform the Jackson Release-N-Lock Technique™.

STEP 1: Assume a comfortable stance and sole your clubface in the middle of your stance.

STEP 2: Grip your left hand on your club in a conventional (diagonal) manner.

STEP 3: While continuing to grip your club with your left hand, release the ring and little fingers of your left hand from your club handle  fully without  completely un-gripping your club. (It helps if you hold down the middle finger of your left hand when you release the ring and little fingers of your hand.) Then re-grip the ring and little fingers of your left hand firmly on your club.

STEP 4:  Then, once again, release the ring and little fingers of your left hand from your club handle fully without completely un-gripping your club. Then re-grip the ring and little fingers of your left hand firmly on your club. (DO NOT RELEASE AND RE-GRIP YOUR LEFT-HAND RING AND LITTLE FINGERS THEREAFTER.)

STEP 5: Keep your feet planted in the same position and then grip your right hand on your club with either an overlapping, interlocking or baseball style of grip. Complete your grip by locking the lifeline of your right hand squarely and securely on your left thumb.

If you follow the above instructions precisely, you will have a locked-in straight ball flight alignment at this point.

If you then complete your setup routine as instructed above, keep your left heel firmly planted, your head held steadily and execute a balanced golf swing, your ball will fly as straight-as-an-arrow directly to your target, discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and your ball.

You the will then know one of the best and easiest ways of how to hit a golf ball straight.
