These iconic-colored alignment sticks are the perfect training aid
Welcome to Gimme That, a GOLF.com column where we’ll highlight one notable item we think you might like. Whether it’s an article of clothing, an intriguing electronic device or anything in between, we want to share these items with you because they’ve generated a bit of chatter by our water cooler (or, these days, on our Slack channel). So sit back, scroll down and keep up with the latest gear golf has to offer.
Talking about becoming a better golfer won’t actually make you a better golfer. Practice will make you better. Yeah, we’re talking about practice. And if you’re going to practice, you might as well do it right. There’s no better practice accessory to bring with you than these alignment sticks from Hazy Sticks.
Alignment Sticks – “The Icon”
It’s important to properly use your alignment sticks if you want to practice effectively. “Establishing the target line is really important for your alignment sticks,” says Top 100 Teacher Jonathan Yarwood. “Most people don’t establish a target line.”
All you need to do is place one alignment stick behind the ball in the direction of your desired target. After that, place the other alignment stick parallel to the first in front of your stance. Before taking a swing, remove the alignment stick behind the ball. It’s as simple as that.
On top of that, you can also use alignment sticks to correct your swing path in a variety of ways through different setup positions. There are endless possibilities on how these sticks can improve your game.
So, why should you put Hazy Sticks in your bag? For starters, they are made of 100% genuine hickory. There are a lot of poorly manufactured alignment sticks out there. You don’t need to worry about that with Hazy Sticks. The gloss protective finish and nickel end caps will have these looking sharp for countless practice sessions.
And lastly, don’t you want everything in your golf bag to look good? I can’t guarantee you’ll play better because Hazy Sticks are in your bag, but you will look good. This white, green, yellow, and red color scheme is hard to beat.
Look good, practice good.
