Quick Golf Tips - Pinpoint Your Aim For Increased Accuracy


Many golfers use the imaginary line between tee markers to align their drives. Usually, that's right on target, but not always. Tee boxes can fool you. They don't always point to the best spot on the fairway to hit your ball. In fact, some tee boxes are intentionally set to create trouble. It's what course designers do to increase the shot's visual difficulty. What you need is an alternative way to align your drive.

Below is a three-step technique for increasing accuracy off the tee:
1. Aim for a small spot down the fairway
2. Aim for an intermediate target
3. Aim for a target a few feet from the ball


Rather than trusting to tee markers, check out the hole's shape. Locate the area on the fairway you think is the best spot for a second shot. Make this your target area. If you're not sure about a good spot, work backwards from the green and pick out where you want to take your approach shot into the green.

Having chosen a good landing spot, get even smaller. Pick out an area in this spot you want to hit. It could be a dark patch of grass or a small brown patch of fairway. Just make sure it's in the landing zone.

Having chosen a landing spot, pick out an intermediate target to the spot. Use the top of tree, a jutting branch, or anything that gives you a good line to your smaller target. This will ensure that even if you miss your target area, you'll still make the fairway for your approach shot.

Finally, pick out a target within a few feet of your ball. Take you address position, aim for the closest target, and swing a way.

Don't be fooled by the tee boxes and tee markers. Use the method described above to increase driving accuracy.
