First off I want to say, I got to play my first 3 rounds with my new AP2's and absolutely love them. Here's my question. When I set up I believe that I am aiming directly at the flag. The. I hit my shot and goes completely straight but will end up roughly either 10 yards left or right of where I thought I was aiming. My eyes are good, I had lasik in the right eye and my left eye is good, but I feel like I pretty much still see mostly out of only my left eye and I am left-handed also. I'm not sure what other info I can give to maybe help out for advice, but if someone can help it'd be much appreciated.

Amanda, one thing to keep in mind is that the most important factor that influences the starting direction of the golf ball is face angle. The ball will launch very closely to the direction that the face is pointed at impact. So, even if your feet, hips and shoulders are all aligned left, if the clubface is pointed right of target, your shot will start right. So, I'd first make sure on all shots that you have the leading edge of your club aligned perpendicular to your target line. Once you're confident that your club is squarely aligned (and using intermediate targets like Ned suggested is really helpful), build your stance out from there, feeling parallel to your target line. Good luck!
