When I am teaching I always look at the shoulder alignment of my students, why? Well it is because shoulder alignment is the most influential alignment factor that affects your shot. The reason for this is because your arms tend to follow where your shoulders are aiming. This means the line of your swing tends to follow the line of your shoulder alignment. So why do people always check the alignment of their feet when the aim of your feet does not play a role in the direction of the shot, it really doesn't.
So check your shoulder alignment and not the alignment of your feet.
