Title in by Alex Morrison my trouble in that 1 Don t know How to aim line up a said miss Dorothy Harkins. Of Flushing Long Island. I always feel that i m lined up wrong so that the Ball could t possibly go straight. I wish someone would straighten out this part of the game for miss Harkins and several thou Sand More who claim the source of their troubles to be in aiming should find a Nice comfortable place to sit Down and have a talk with themselves. The first question they should ask is How could i prove that faulty aiming is the origin of the yes this instructor will concede that Verj Creon with an aiming Complex is thoroughly convinced that the starting lineup is the Root of Al evil. But. These Good people should try to balance this conviction with facts such As Are Learned from the performance of players fighting the instructor s attempts to Cor rect their aiming. Here is an experience of the other Day. An old baseball player and supporter of the right hand theory in Golf found himself utterly helpless in this matter of direction. He thought he was changing ills stance enough to keep his Ball Erom going off into the Woods on the left but every time he swung he had to go Hunting. I explained that he was lined up to get just such an error in the flight of his Ball. I had him change from a closed stance to an open one. But he protested claiming he did t feel As though he would have control Over the flight of the Ball. I told him. Just As i advised miss Harkins that the difficulty about aiming was Only a symptom of a More serious fault namely steering. Players who swing the club without trying to steer it or the Ball experienc Little or no trouble in lining up a shot. The first step toward swinging and away from steering is to adopt an open stance. Place your feet so that a line across your toes Points to the left of a straight line of your target.
