Lining Up for Range Practice
Here’s how I make sure that my alignment rod is set up properly when I practice my alignment on the driving range:
I start by crouching behind the ball: I lay down an alignment rod pointing parallel to the line that I want to start the ball on.
Then, I lay a rod directly down the line that I want the ball to take off on.
I take the ball out from under the rod…
…and double check that my lines are parallel by measuring with the grip of two clubs. I adjust the alignment rod on the left if needed.
Then I take away the rod on the right and replace it with a ball. Now I am ready to practice knowing that I am lined up correctly!

Also, you can buy these sticks that I use for alignment at Lowes or Home Depot for about $2.00 each. They are just reflector rods. Have fun practicing!
