Point and Shoot!
Last spring I had the privilege of conducting a clinic with LPGA golf legend, Donna Capone. We had a great time, not only exchanging and sharing tips for game improvement, but also sharing tour stories, mine of the mini-tour – Q-School ilk and hers of The Big Show! We had hoped that in the end, those who attended would grab a few nuggets of information that would help them improve. Donna and I had talked on the phone about what we might do for the hour. Should we focus on the driver? Cover short game? Putting? In the end, we decided we would just let it fall into place once we got there. Well it turns out our main focus was on the foundation of the swing…the king of all things golf swing…the most important element of all…are you ready…….tadahhhhh…….Alignment!!!!! And you thought it was going to be something super complicated and sexy! This my friends, is the king of kings in golf. It is one of the most important things if not THE most important elements of a good golf swing. If it isn’t THE most important things it’s the second most important, second only to the grip.
So we talked and demonstrated good alignment, answered questions and in the end after the dust settled on where we were aiming, we aimed ourselves over to the bunker for a few swipes of the sand. And of course, even in there….we talked about alignment!
