The most over looked fundamental in the game of golf is Alignment. 8 out of 10 golfers have poor alignment typically aiming their bodies too far to the right (right handed players). Poor alignment typically causes a slice, which curves the ball left to right and typically lacks power.
To make sure you have proper alignment you want to make sure your feet, knees, hips and shoulders are all aimed parallel to the left of the target approximately 5-10 yards.
Let me know how this works for you and I hope this helps you hit the ball straighter and score lower!
