Colby Huffman on Hitting Narrow Fairways (Video)

You've probably heard GCA coach Colby Huffman's aiming advice before, but it bears repeating.

I'll be brief because I don't need to belabor the point. No less than the great Jack Nicklaus followed this approach:
  • Visualize the actual shape of the shot as it flies down the fairway.
  • Pick a spot on the ground just ahead of the ball that, if you hit the ball over that spot, it will start to create that shot you visualized.
  • Take your address position and focus on that spot.
  • Hit the ball over that spot.
Instead of being spooked by the narrow fairway and trying not to hit the ball into the trees, focus on the spot and hit the ball over it. It's a simple mental thing but don't underestimate how effective it can be.

Again, just remember that Jack Nicklaus did it all the time... and it worked for him. It can work for you as well.
