Start Line String
A lot of elite players will say that when they are playing well, they are able to see and hit their "lines". By using a ribbon or string on the range, you can work on your pre-shot visualization, re-calibrate your alignment, and fine tune your face-to-path relationship. Once your alignment and start line "awareness" are re-calibrated, you will want to make note of any patterns in your ball striking. If you are consistently starting the ball left or right of the ribbon/string, you may need to work on some shallowing moves, such as the "Jackson 5", or ulnar deviation of the wrists. Overall, this is a simple, but great drill for giving players a better awareness for their start line, while allowing them to hone in on what may be the cause of their misses.
