The Power of Alignments

It’s vital to understand the concept of alignments and in golf it means to start with or move things into line and/or maintains the relationship between one thing and the other.


  1. Left wrist hinge pin is parallel to the leading edge of the face
  2. The first knuckle of the trailing forefinger is directly behind the sweet spot

NOTE: Ball Position

The lowest point in your swing arc is the crease between your left arm and shoulder. The ball placement for irons should be back of this point and can vary slightly with the short – long irons. The fairway metals about equal with the bottom of your swing and from a tee up position with the driver further towards the shoulder socket

  3.    The club shaft points to the center of the hips (belt buckle) to help promote coordination between the body and arms 

  4.   The elbows align down towards the hips through the pressure points in the grip and also connects the upper arms to the body 

  5.   The forward/tilt alignment of the spine to the ground 

  6.   Stance alignment needs to be parallel to the target line includes clubface, feet, knees, hips and shoulders
