You’re on the range. You’ve seen the alignment rods. You wonder how to use them...... With the @theopen coming up at @royalportrushgolfclub it will be interesting to see the players aim. With hardly any trees or other visual markers to use, they will have to find intermediate targets on the fairway. Many players do this already but it becomes a must for those who don’t. Here I’m using @bubbawhips 💕 for practice. I think having two is helpful because the first one you use to set your target line (where you want the ball to end up) and the second one set parallel to that on the ground. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 💙 Apparel: @jlindebergsport ⠀⠀⠀ 🖤 Hardware: @titleist @scottycameron @vokeywedges 💚 Kicks: @gfore
Are you, or do you know someone who is thinking about starting golf? . Whether it’s you or someone you love, encourage it! This game is incredible at bringing unlikely people together whether it’s on the golf course or in conversation. There is no way I would have met the great Christine Lagarde @Christinelagarde (former head of the IMF and next president of the European Central Bank, Forbes Top 100 most influential women in the world, #3) and Jane Harman (former congresswoman from CA, and now head of the Wilson Center). These two incredibly bright and inspirational women, were so much fun to teach. What an honor and privilege to have had that time. . Happy Bastille Day! 🇫🇷 @christinelagarde @jlindebergofficial @jlindebergsport
So this was a fun round.
