Your pre-shot routine is important for a variety of different reasons, one of which is your alignment. Everyone has to walk in to the ball before they take a swing, so you must be lined up correctly or else the ball could miss your target drastically.
One of the most common mistakes that amateur golfers make when they walk in to the ball is they move their feet and get misaligned. While looking up at the target to get one last look, they start dancing around. This has been happening to Walt Piotrowski recently, which is why he's looking for some advice on how to walk in to the ball while keeping his alignment correct.
I found your site and swing this spring after 2+ years of trying to find a swing that let me avoid back pain from an injury. I love it! It works! No pain!
I think I have the basics of the swing more or less in place and I now blame alignment first when I begin to have problems. I've been working on duplicating your alignment setup, described in the alignment videos, but I'm having a problem. When you do the 1-2, you already have an alignment stick on the ground at the correct distance back from the ball. When I do the 1-2, I often find that I'm not quite at the correct distance from the ball, so I "dance." I dance until it feels right.Your videos describe what goes wrong with that.
What I really like about your DVDs and your daily tips is that they speed me along on the right path. Before my back injury, I had a good swing / game but it took many years to work it out. A lot of it became internalized and I seldom needed to think about it. Now it seems that I have a lot to think about on every shot. If you can help me with a tip, I'd be even more grateful than I already am.
Watch the video today and you'll get a complete understanding on what it takes to walk in to the ball with good alignment. You can't play golf with bad alignment, so don't start off on the wrong foot.
Keep it vertical!
