How to Use Alignment Sticks!
10. Swing Plane
This is a great drill for any golfer who struggles with an over the top golf swing. The alignment stick is placed in the ground behind you at a 45˚ angle (it should roughly match the angle of your club shaft at address - the video that comes with this article shows how to do it). If you are at the range, you can place the stick through a basket. As you take the club back to the point where you have introduced your wrist hinge, the angle of the club shaft should match the alignment stick. Then as you swing down, the club should pass under the plane of the alignment stick. This will create that ‘in-to-out’ swing path that so many amateur golfers struggle with.
