Hit More Straight Golf Shots

I’m going to be somewhat of a heretic today by saying that you don’t need to know one darn thing about a swing plane in order to hit a golf ball straight to a target that you choose….and if I’m mistaken, I thought that was how we get lower scores – make the ball go to a target.

Yep, it’s true. Ever watch Lee Trevino’s or Allen Doyle’s or Jim Furyk’s swing? Proof.

Now, I don’t want you to believe me or trust me. I want you to use your own common sense, logic and rational thinking while watching this video below. The concept that I’m giving you in this Shortcut Secret is going to do more to freeing you up for your best game than any swing fix you will ever get.

Once again…watch and trust yourself….



I’m Craig Sigl author of the book: “Break 80! 52 ways to lower your golf score without practice”

You wanna know the secret of hitting golf balls as straight as you can point? Here it is…I actually call this “square and point”. Look in order to send a golf ball to a target, there’s only 2 things that need to happen.

You square the clubhead up to the ball at the moment of impact
You point the shaft down the target line a short distance after striking the ball.

That’s it! That’s the 80/20 to hitting the ball straight. It doesn’t matter WHAT you do in your backswing as long as you do these 2 things and it works with every club in your bag. All fundamental instruction out there is designed to increase the odds of this happening for you so you send the ball to your target. Now, I’m not talking about shaping a ball here…please, leave that to the pros you’re wasting precious time and energy trying to work a ball left and right. Just hit the damn thing straight more often and your scores will go down.

Well, “Easier said than done Craig” you might be saying right about now. I need all that instruction to actually make square and point happen.


For now, just start thinking about what I’ve told you here. Square…and point. In fact, don’t TRY to square and point when you swing….just THINK about it as you drift off to sleep at night and then during your preshot routine out on the course. This works like magic! Trust yourself….

    I have now been trying for weeks to follow your videos, but the quality of it is very poor. It start and stop and start and stop and so it goes. How is it possible? I can’t follow a thing.

    Dear Craig ,Your tip is basic common sense :Golf Pros make things much more difficult than they really are .But this you usually find out by yourself after many ,many years.What you should aim for is to simplify your swing to the utmost and that’s exactly what you say .Bravo!

    “You square the clubhead up to the ball at the moment of impact” Oh yeah!! How do you do that? Sorry Craig, now you are getting into swing fundamentals and this is not a mental picture I want to go to bed with. I didn’t think you taught that?

    • Craig Sigl says:

      Hi Charlie, All I’m saying is to “think” doing this. Frankly, I have to say that this tip is how I made the biggest jump in my golf score improvement. You are right, I don’t teach fundamentals. I don’t try to figure out what my body is doing to make that happen. I trust my unconscious mind to make it happen out of my awareness. Why wouldn’t you want to go to bed with a slow-motion video in your head of your club squaring up to the ball at impact and following down the target line a short distance? This is so simple and easy and more effective than any lesson I ever took.

    Works for ma Crsig.Although I lost distance first of all because of concentrating on square and straight I know the distance will come back once I do this routine naturally.

    • Craig Sigl says:

      Yes it will. That’s typical. Interesting thing will also happen…you will hit it straighter more often and realize that “Straight” is far more important than distance!
      Greens and Fairways,
