HIT A GOLF BALL STRAIGHT: SIMPLY LOCK-IN A STRAIGHT GOLF BALL ALIGNMENT

How to hit a golf ball straightIt is easy to hit a golf ball straight-as-an-arrow if you know how many times to lock the lifeline of your right hand on your left-hand thumb.

One way to hit a golf ball straight is to lock the lifeline of your right hand on your left-hand thumb three times during your setup routine.

The “lifeline” of the lifeline/thumb connection is the line that runs between the thumb and palm pads of each hand.

Thus, when the lifeline of the right hand is locked on the left-hand thumb, I refer to the procedure as performing the lifeline/thumb connection.

When you grip your club with either an interlocking, overlapping or baseball (ten fingers) style of grip, you should complete your grip by docking (locking) the lifeline of your right hand squarely and securely on your left-hand thumb.

This act of docking (locking) the lifeline of the right hand on the left-hand thumb constitutes the first of the three lifeline/thumb connections.

However, to lock-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the clubface which, in  turn, will lock-in a straight ball flight alignment during the setup proceedings to hit the golf ball straight, there must be three lifeline/thumb connections.

Once you complete your grip and unlock the lifeline of your right hand from your left-hand thumb by at least an inch without completely un-gripping your club and then relock the lifeline of your right hand squarely and securely on your left-hand thumb twice after gripping your club initially, you will lock-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of your clubface which, in turn, will lock-in a straight ball flight alignment.

By doing so, you will have locked your lifeline thumb/connection three times, counting the initial lock to complete your grip.

Once you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment, you must not thereafter unlock your lifeline/thumb connection,

Then it is just a matter of assuming a comfortable stance and posture to your ball, centering the sweet spot of your clubface as near as possible to the back of your ball, aligning your shoulders parallel with your target line, maintaining a steady head and executing a balanced golf swing.

Then watch your ball fly as straight-as-an-arrow directly to your target, discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and your ball.

This technique is referred to as the Triple Crown Technique™.

More detailed instructions and trouble-shooting tips to perform the Triple Crown Technique™  are addressed in the book, How To Lock-In A Perfect Swing.

This book is available at LockedInGolf.com.

Once you are able to perform the Triple Crown Technique™ and complete the setup proceedings as discussed above, you definitely will be able to hit a golf ball straight-as-an-arrow, one shot after another.
