Shoulder Alignment…

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Yup, today was one of those days I kept hitting the ball with a slight fade. Actually, it start a bit left of where I aimed and landed on the target or missed slightly right. I’ve been doing this for like last 3 months and wanted to really “fix” the issue.

So, I know I “align” my shoulders “parallel” to my target but just out of curiosity, decided to actually put a club on it.

And wow, my shoulders were about 10 degrees open, explaining my slightly left-to-right shots.

I had been doing this for months and this can cause many havoc like perfect shots that leak to the right or even duck hooks if you try to really square the clubface.

Anyways, align you shoulders to parallel to your target.

You can do this simply by placing a club on your shoulders after you take your address.

You might be surprised too, at where your shoulders are.

They should be “parallel” to your target line.

Now, I can actually hit the golf ball right on target, especially with the longer clubs. My problem now is that I am drawing the ball a bit too much as I am still trying to get used to the new shoulder alignment.

Keep hittin’ that ball and no matter what people tell you, you can do it, that’s the will you will need out there on the course. :)
