Tip of the Week Series – Proper Setup of Golf Swing Part 3 February 6, 2013

In every golf shot, whether it is a drive or a putt, the body must be aligned correctly.  If our aim is off, we don’t want to have a good swing because the ball would not go towards the target.

To align the body correctly, the toes, knees, hips, shoulders and eyes should all be parallel with the target. Imagine railroad tracks. There is one track running to the hole and the other track is parallel. Align your body along the inside rail. You may feel that you are left of the target (for a right hand player), but will actually be in the correct alignment.
