Tips of the month from Taylor Murphy - Australia PGA

One of the most basic elements of hitting good shot is making sure that we are aiming in right direction a good way to think of this is that the club will tend to follow the direction if the body and feet.

If we are to study world class players in the modern era we will see that they all work very hard on alignment every time they practice and it becomes a part of their routine set up with every shot in competition. Next time you are playing golf with you friends  stand behind them while they play some shots and you will soon see that many golfers are aiming a long way off from the center of the fairway, you will also note that the better the player the better the alignment.

 

In this example we can see that our player Andrew  is aiming well to the right of the center of fairway

 

Here we can see the player aiming well to the left of center

 

Here we can see the player feet / shoulders aiming straight down the middle and this will give him the best chance to swing through the ball on the right line

 

                 Good luck!

 Last week I was taking a drive around the Montgomerie Links Golf Course and I watched group of ladies play some golf. You know I was very impressed with how they played the ball from tee to green and they seemed to be having such a great time laughing and joking, but when the all reached the approach to the green their gamed literally fell apart, they were hitting chip shots back and forth over the green and became very frustrated very quickly.
