AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL
Quite often when I am playing with members I see them make a good swing with good contact and miss the fairway by twenty yards. Confused, they will look at me and ask what happened. When I ask what they were aiming at, it is amazing how often they reply, “The fairway”. While it seems like a good concept, aiming into a 35 yard wide fairway is not nearly as precise as we need to be. There seems to be an intimidation that settles in on a golfer when I tell them to aim at a branch/sign/etc. in the distance. “I can’t hit that exact line, I’m not good enough”. We don’t have to hit that exact line, but if we can aim at a small target and miss that by a little bit, you will be in much better shape that just aiming at a huge fairway and missing that. Hence the term “Aim small, miss small”.
