Hey, Quite The Chap here for GolfersRX. Welcome to the How to Shoot in the 80’s series in the 60 Second Series, where today we’re going to find fairways, that is, Hit More Fairways.
Fairways, the things we cross when we’re looking for our ball—shorter grass—generally, a nice place to be. Let’s find the fairway on a more regular basis with this simple setup and figure out how to hit the fairway every time.
Hit More Fairways
This is advice directly from Jack Nicklaus:
- When you’re lining up your shot, stand behind the ball,
- Pick a small target in the distance (aim small, miss small)
- Now here is the key, pick a target 2-5 feet in front of your ball that is on the same line; a divot, a weed, etc.,
- Line up to that target. Forget about the target in the distance. Lock into the target directly in front of you,
- That kind of focus is going to give you the confidence to swing freely and hit more fairways.
Golfer beware; this does not fix your slice or hook. What this does is get you lined up properly. So if you play a power fade, set up and play for it, same if you draw the ball. Ben Hogan famously said: “You only hit a straight ball by accident.”
Pick a target that plays into your shot shape, and you will hit more fairways.
