Research in visual perception shows that traditional Woods with curved tops are hard to align to the target, but the level TOP-PLANE and ALIGNMENT INDICATOR of the Thomas Golf Woods, make for easy alignment of the club to the target line. The golfer's feet, hips, and shoulders can then be easily set up parallel to the indicator and target line. Professional instructors around the world emphasize these factors as the essential elements to achieving a successful swing and ball flight.
Few people realize that more than 85% of golfers have chronic alignment and ball position problems.
The classic case is the golfer who aligns to the right or left of the target, then pushes or pulls the ball to the target, thus creating a swing fault. The eyes see the curved face and top of the club head, this is very difficult to aim correctly. Because the mind's eye sees the true line, an unconscious swing fault occurs in an attempt to correct for the poor alignment. We blame errant shots on our swing, rather than our poor alignment.
