Line up parallel to target
To hit straight shots, make sure your feet, hips and shoulders all line up correctly. The shoulders are the key, because they control the arms, which in turn swing the club. To check your shoulder alignment, place a club on the ground parallel to the target line. Now point your index fingers at each other. If your fingers parallel a club on the ground, your shoulders are aligned correctly. (From page 204.)
