Hi Cindy –
Using your technique I confirmed what I already knew .. that I am heavily left-eye dominant.

Question is:
How do I apply that to my alignment?
(Or is this the subject of a follow-up tip?)

And.. Is the alignment adjustment the same .. or different .. for regular swings vs. putting?


Ok, confirmed that Iam R eye dominat , how can I apply this for improvement. Driver, putter, alignment choices.Thanks Charles

If you are playing golf right handed and are right eye dominate, it will help you walk into the golf ball open. Drop your left foot back as you walk into the ball. If you need to, close your left eye. Make sure you are able to see your target clearly. This should really make it easier for you to line up.

You mention that you are left eye dominate. Do you play left or right handed?

Ok so I am Left eye dominate, how does that help my game knowing that I am Left eye dominate. I play right handed.

If you are left eye dominate and play golf right handed, you are at an advantage. When you stand over a shot, try closing your right eye and look down the line. You should be able to see where you are going very clearly. For those who are right eye dominate and play right handed, it is harder to see the line while standing over the ball.
