Our theme this week is “accuracy” and I talk about the one critical move to attain consistent accuracy in your game.  I call it “release down the line” and with a little bit of practice with the aid of an alignment stick, you can accomplish this!

Hi, I’m Mel Sole, Director of Instruction at the Mel Sole Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.  Watch how you can hit the ball a lot straighter than you ever thought you could!

Definition of Practice.

Focused repetition with Feedback!  You are not going to ingrain anything without repetition, and you are certainly not going to do that repetition correctly without feedback!

What is Feedback?

Feedback is using any type of teaching aid or device that tells you the moment you have not done your motion correctly!

Accuracy.

In order to be accurate, you have to keep the clubhead moving down the line.  How do you do that?  With an alignment stick!

The Method.

Place the alignment stick about 3 feet in front of you and right on your toe line.  Practice hitting short shots and not hit the alignment stick.  If you struggle to do this, don’t be afraid to exaggerate.  This is a conscious movement.  The body is not going to do it automatically just because you are thinking about it!  And of course, when the ball is there, the body is going to try and return to its comfort zone!
