Golf Tips Instruction: Square Your Club Face To Your Target, Not Necessarily With Your Tee Box

easiest golf swing lessonsOne of the most important golf tips instruction is to square the face of your club to your target, not necessarily with  your tee box.

The reason why this is one of the most important golf tips instruction is because so many tee boxes are not aligned squarely with the target, whether the target is straight down the middle of a fairway or to the flag on an approaching green.

Therefore, you must square your club face to your target, but not necessarily with your tee box, if your objective is to hit a golf ball straight.

If your tee box is not aligned squarely to your target you should not rely on aligning your shoulders parallel with your tee box if you want to hit a straight golf shot.

Instead, you should align the face of your club to your target and ignore how the tee box is positioned in relation to your target.

You may want to perform the following technique to align your shoulders parallel with your target line once you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment so that you will be aligned properly to your target.

There are more than 100 techniques available in DVD’s, books and Special Reports at Locked-In that instruct how to lock in a straight ball flight alignment.

Once you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment and completed your setup routine, one way to confirm your shoulders are aligned parallel with your shoulder line is to perform the Arrow Alignment Technique™.

Here are the steps to perform this most innovative technique and confirm whether or not your shoulders are aligned perfectly parallel with your target line at final address to your  ball.

1.   Immobilize your body to maintain your spine angle.

2.   Then close your left eye and focus your right eye on its inside corner at the top of your nose where you should detect a faint configuration of an “arrow.”

3.   Continue to focus on the “arrow” and, while continuing to immobilize your body, turn your head counterclockwise as far as comfortably possible.

4.   Maintain your eye contact with the “arrow” and, while ensuring the sweet spot of your club face remains centered as near as possible to the back of your ball, move your feet very slightly, if necessary, until the “arrow” points directly at your target.

5.   At such point, your shoulders should be aligned parallel with your target line, the imaginary line running from your target back to and through your ball.

6.   Turn your head back to its original position, keep your left heel planted, maitain eye contact with your ball and execute a simple golf shot

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

You then should understand why perfect alignment in relation to your target rather than in relation to your tee box is such an important golf tips instruction.
