Shawn – I could not find a video on alignment other than this one, so here goes. I play in a company golf league and have played the same course for 32 years. There is one hole that is wide open and I have had trouble hitting my tee shot in play on this hole – it is a 500 yard par 5 that must have 200 yards of width to hit it into. Another player mentioned how hard it can be to hit a good tee shot there even though it was wide open, this past Thursday.

The thing about this hole is that it is wide open and straight away like a runway – there is really nothing to aim at. There is a fence along the right side and a stand of trees left. Those are both common miss locations – as if the finish of a Don’t hit it… at the trees, at the fence, line of thinking.

Have you ever done anything with how to aim on a hole where there is nothing to aim at? You have your intermediate point, but the mind (at least mine) can be unsatisfied with that, despite familiarity with the hole? I pick out a location on the fairway but I think it may be easier to lose that spot versus a tree.

Does takeaway go along target line (as if set up square )/??
Or along toe line which feels like bringing club too far inside ?

Really enjoyed the video. I’ve used the one foot target for years but I’ve made the mistake of looking up at the target after I’ve taken my stance. This would sabotage my confidence in the correct line that I had seen from the back or behind view, which affected my swing and concentration. Now, no more second guessing. Thanks again, Mike H.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
