Yup, today’s golf swing practice went pretty darn well.
One of the things I was doing wrong was aiming. I was aiming way too far left and I kept hitting a 20-yard banana fade (or slice) OR a 30-50 yard duck hook.
After I found out my aiming was off by at least 30 yards left of my target, I used a club to align myself.
Voila, it’s one of those moments when you need to get back to basics of golf, I started hitting my golf ball right on target. Even when I missed, my misses would stay within 10 yard radius to left or right.
Great result right?
Yup, it happens to even the best of the pros, aiming. I was about to quit golf then I found out it was my aim.
Also, after correcting my aim, I kept still duck-hooking all my longer clubs like the driver.
At first, I started swinging easier, making sure to use my body to make the golf swing.
Then, I started hitting the ball like 320 yards easy with my driver and darn straight. One more note, I was delaying my impact with my arms and hands then I tried delaying the whole lag process with my whole body.
Voila, I start hitting these 320 yard drives right down the pipe at my target.
After that, I re-gained confidence in my ability to shoot some low scores under par. I will play this Saturday and see if these things prove to work on the course so until then, make sure you are aiming “parallel” to your target, and don’t forget to swing with your whole body!
