Golf Swing Video: Painless Golf Aim for Deadly Golf Alignment

In this video post, we take a look at Justin Thomas and how his golf aim arises from his alignment method before he addresses the golf ball.

Mundane, you say?  Hardly.  Very few things can help you improve faster than getting into the proper golf address position with proper golf alignment on each and every shot.  Believe it.

I often see my playing partners neglect this part of the game.  It is a shame.

If you don’t get your golf setup, golf alignment, and golf aim right, you cannot possibly execute your best swing at your intended target.  It is the tried and true Aim->Align->Execute method.

You will hardly ever see a pro skip this step.  But, you also seldom see this shown on TV.  The cutaway shots only show the swing and the result, not the preparation that led up to the swing.

Maybe this is a good call for the television audience.  But it tends to give us a distorted view of reality.  Don’t be fooled by the TV producers!  Know that every pro, and every player of any ability, focuses hard on their golf aim.

The Crucial Key:  Golf Aim Precedes Golf Alignment!

Watch Justin’s setup and preparation to hit this golf shot.  It is a practice round, or a pro-am, or something (see the golf cart?  Note that there are no spectators).

Seems like a chance to have a few frosty beverages, horse around, hit the ball, find it, hit it again, maybe make a few bucks in the process.  Certainly all true.

But this does not deter Justin from going through his routine, because you do it every time. Even at a pro-am.  Even at the driving range.  Yes, even at the driving range.  How else will you improve?
