GOLF SWING INSTRUCTIONS: LEARN HOW TO PERFORM THE ARROW ALIGNMENT TECHNIQUE™

golf swing instructionsOne of the most important golf swing instructions of all is to teach a golfer how to align his or her shoulders parallel with the target line during the setup proceedings if the objective is to hit the golf ball straight.

If you possess the skills to lock-in a straight ball flight alignment, center your clubface directly behind your ball, align your shoulders parallel with your target line, keep your left heel planted and execute a balanced golf swing, your ball will fly on a straight path in the direction o your target.

However, there is far too much guesswork when it comes to aligning the shoulders parallel with the target line during the pre-swing proceedings, especially when using the conventional approach to achieving such an alignment.

The more reliable way to align the shoulders parallel with the target line during the setup proceedings is to perform the Arrow Alignment Technique™.

In designing the Arrow Alignment Technique™ my objective was to remove all guesswork in this alignment procedure.

The Arrow Alignment Technique™ is best performed after locking-in a straight ball flight alignment and centering the sweet spot of the clubface as near as possible to the back of the ball during the setup routine.

Once you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment, centered the sweet spot of your clubface as near as possible to the back of your ball, you should then—

STEP1: Keep your body immobilized except your head.

STEP 2: Close your left eye and focus your right eye on its inside corner (at the top of your nose.) You should observe an arrow configuration at the inside corner of your right eye.

STEP 3: While continuing to keep all other parts of your body immobilized and focusing your right eye on its inside corner, turn your head counterclockwise in the direction of your target as far as comfortably possible.

STEP 4: Then adjust your stance, if necessary, until the tip- end of the “arrow”  points directly at your target. When the tip-end ot the  “arrow” at the inside corner of your right eye points directly at your target, your shoulders should be aligned parallel with your target line.

STEP 5: Then turn your head back to its original position and ensure the sweet spot of your clubface has remained centered as near as possible to the back of your ball.

STEP 6:  Keep your left heel firmly planted, your head held steadily, maintain eye contact with your ball and execute a balanced golf swing.

Then watch your ball fly on a straight path directly to your target.

Once you learn how to perform the Arrow Alignment Technique™   you should know that taking the guesswork out of aligning your shoulders parallel with your target has to be the one of  the best golf swing instructions of all.
