Probably the fastest way to learn how to hit a golf ball straight is to begin with the shorter clubs.
The reason why one should begin with the shorter clubs when learning how to hit a golf ball straight is that they have less dispersion associated with them.
The club face of shorter clubs remain square to the target line longer during the impact zone than less lofted clubs.
If you want to begin hitting some of the best golf shots of your life, you should start off with the most lofted club in your set–typically a wedge of some sort–and swing at different levels.
For example, begin your practice with your most lofted club with no more than a one-quarter swing.
Once you are able to hit consistentlystraight golf shotswith one-quarter swings, you should then move up to one-half swings with your most lofted club.
Then,once again, when you are able to hit consistently straight golf shots with a one-half swing, move on to a three-quarter swing and then on to a full swing.
Once you are able to hit straight golf shots with a one-quarter, one-half, three-quarter and a full swing with your most lofted club, then move up to the next most lofted club and repeat the process, continuing in this manner through your entire set.
This is what is called learning golf from the “inside-out.”
