Muscle memory is about programming your muscles to make consistent movements through repetition for better golf today. For all of us this takes a different amount of time, based on your body type, age, athleticism and of course time to practice. The good news is that we all can achieve this in our golf swing. To play better golf today doesn’t mean we need to swing countless times at the golf range. In fact, here is a tip, hitting 150 or more balls can actually hurt your muscle memory due to fatigue and muscle flexibility that can actually change your entire swing as well as contact angle. Instead try this tip, focus on your golf swing form and the consistency of speed with form that you can repeat time and again for effective golf practice. More importantly, the fact that you can repeat the same golf swing on the course is vital and this will also lead to better golf fitness.
Tip 1: Know Your Clubs
Know your clubs and how well and far you hit them. Whether you make use of Taylor Made, Callaway, Nike, Cleveland, Ping, Adams, Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Cobra, Wilson, Hireko, McGregor, Tommy Armour, Titleist, Krank or others, you must learn distance control. Take note of your tendencies, which clubs you consistently hit best and your swing feels the most natural. This will come in handy when you have that off the fairway shot or when you have a tricky distance to manage.
Tip 2: Align the Club First
The next time you are on the course and are setting up for your next great golf shot, make sure you align the club face behind the ball to directly set up at the target.

This even works when putting after your have read the green first of course. If you need assistance with this consider golf alignment sticks, such as the brands David Leadbetter, Callaway and Maxfli just to name a few.
