Golf alignment is a crucial aspect of the game that should not be overlooked. A golfer’s ideal swing can be hampered if they are unable to properly align themselves to their target.
It’s important to differentiate between aim and alignment. Aim refers to where you want the ball to go, while alignment refers to the position of your body in relation to the aim. For example, if you have a habit of hitting your driver with a fade of 30 yards and aim to hit the centre of the fairway, your golf alignment should be 30 yards to the left of the aim point.

Golf Stance Alignment
To achieve proper golf stance alignment, follow this routine next time you play:
- Visualise a line on the ground representing your desired alignment.
- Choose a small object on this line near your ball, such as a leaf or divot.
- Aim your club face at this intermediate target.
- Set up your stance and posture so that your shoulders, hips, knees, and toes are all parallel to the line you visualised.
- Turn your head to confirm that your body is aligned as intended.
By following this routine, you can improve your golf stance alignment and ensure that you are always set up correctly. Get in touch with Chris to help you with your game.
