MCA Player Tip #1: Be a Stalker

The MCA blog is introducing an occasional series of player tips from and for players of varying skill levels. Darin Watson takes the first swing:

I think learning to “stalk” the ball before a shot really helped me improve. It’s a simple step, but it definitely helps. I like to start about 10-15 feet behind the ball and walk in line with the shot I’m planning to take, and I visualize myself making that shot. Visualize the shot, walk up to it confidently, and make it.

I would agree with Darin Watson. Always “stalk” your ball whether it be a long shot or clearing a wicket from as close as three feet. If you are lucky enough to own either an AirHeart or AirGo mallet with their “wishbone handle” you have an additional advantage when stalking your ball. From about 10-15 feet behind the ball approach it in a straight line. When you reach your ball place your AirHeart or AirGo mallet behind the ball and step back far enough to look through the wishbone handle. Is your line of aim straight? If yes, take your stance. If not, make any adjustment with the mallet head and sight line to your target. The AirHeart or AirGo mallets are designed to give you confidence on the court to make you a better player.
