Four Steps Toward Hitting the Golf Ball Straight

The key to playing good recreational golf is to hit the ball straight. Distance is fine, but hole in, hole out, straight is the goal. Hit into the fairway, and onto the green, and you can shoot lots of good scores.

Hitting straight is not easy. It takes dedicated practice to become a straight hitter. I want to give you four points to work on that will take you a long way in that direction. If you put these points into your swing, I guarantee good things will happen.

Unfreezing Your Golf Swing

My newest YouTube video is now posted. It is titled, “Unfreezing Your Golf Swing.” It concerns the habit of stepping up to the ball and waiting far too long to take the club back.

Learn also about the sequence of using the conscious mind and the subconscious mind when hitting a shot, which applies to everyone.

You, however, don’t have to go to YouTube. You can watch it right here.

Practice aiming your golf shot

You can hit the best shot ever, but unless you’re aimed where you and the ball to go, it won’t go there. Getting your aim right takes constant practice. Here’s how to do it.

Remember, do this drill every time you go to the range. Proper aim is not something you can learn once and then not worry about again.

This later post goes into a clear explanation of what I mean by the “picture” you see when you are properly aimed.

See my earlier video, on how to aim yourself, in case you have forgotten. This method does not compete with the video above, but compliments it.
