Why You Should Always Aim on the Driving Range

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 140

Common sense dictates that if you want to be good at something, then hard work and dedication is key. The same thing applies to golf; a whole lot of practice will help you improve your game. However if you really want to go to the next level, then smarter practice should be incorporated.That way, not only do you improve, but you do so in less time.

Beginners tend to make the mistake of whacking balls blindly with reckless abandon when they are on the driving range. The smart thing to do is to pick out a specific target they should be aiming at. If you are lucky enough that your driving range have greens that you can aim at then take advantage of this luxury when you're practicing. However, not all driving range have greens, then if that's the case, try to look for other targets you can use for your shots. You can choose basically anything as long as you have a target for your shot.

The purpose of a target is so that you will know if you are pulling the ball, pushing it, or knocking down the stick. How much is your ball drawing or fading? These are the things you will need to know when you try to hit the ball accurately out on the course.

Posture is also a distinct advantage once you incorporate an aim in your shot while practicing in the driving range. You can then align your feet and body easier. Once you have picked a target, throw clubs down parallel to the line.Your feet should run just the left (for a right-handed golfer) like it's on a railroad track. When the club is in front of your ball, then you will be able to aim the clubface better. A setup partner can then lay a club across your shoulders or hips to make sure your body is aligned at the best possible way for you to find lasting success. While swing mechanics is important as well, it's far more easier to swing the clubthe right way than when you setup properly. It all starts with taking aim on the practice range. You won't need to hit an infinite number of balls on the range to establish a consistent flight path if you know where to aim and hit your target on the range.

So, next time you are out on the driving range pick out a target to aim at.It's good practice for when you are playing for real out on the course.
