how to hit the golf ball straightWhen learning how to hit the golf ball straight, keeping your right knee braced will help. Also keeping your right knee level during your golf swing will help when learning how to hit the golf ball straight.

A combination of keeping your left knee level and braced during your golf swing will prevent you from transferring your weight to the outside of your right foot and swaying  your spine off its axis.

Assuming you have established a square club face alignment to your ball and target at the completion of your set up routine and then transfer your weight to the outside of your right foot during your back swing, it will be most difficult to transfer your weight back to the core part of your body during your downswing in order to deliver a square club face to your ball at impact and hit straight golf shots.

A recent article discusses the significance of keeping your weight inside your feet during your golf swing to improve your golf game:

“One area to really focus on is the right knee. Especially in the early stages of your takeaway and backswing. The correct technique is to keep it in the exact same spot throughout your entire first phase of the swing, but I can assure you most golfers don’t.

It is very unnatural to restrict the movement of this knee, but critical to having a stable base and avoiding a lateral slide (sway) off the ball. You see…your lower body is the foundation to your golf swing. Its what enables you to swing at up to 85+ mph without falling over. It also provides a ton of power, as you can use ground forces to your advantage. Read more….http://ezinearticles.com/?A-Stable-Right-Knee-In-Your-Backswing-For-More-Power&id=6589517.”

Assuming you have centered the sweet spot of your club face as near to the back of your ball as possible, established a straight ball flight alignment and aligned your shoulders parallel with your target line,  and then keep your right knee level and braced, maintain a steady head and execute a simple golf swing, you will be able to delivera square club face to your ball and hit your ball on  a straight path to your target.

You will appreciate then how keeping your right knee level and braced during your golf swing will help when learning how to hit the golf ball straight.
