ANSWER

Hi Andy

I see a lot of golfers struggle with their alignment and the key is to have a solid pre-shot routine when addressing the ball. Once you’ve selected the club and type of shot you want to play, place the club behind the ball, pointing it at the target then align your feet, knees, hips, forearms and shoulders parallel to your clubface in that exact order. This will get you flag hunting in no time. Good luck!
