I'm having issues keeping my alignment to the target. I've gotten really open to my target. ANY advice on a drill or something to get a feel on staying aligned to my target. Couldn't figure out how to attach a picture but my power step leaves my right foot basically parallel to the foul line to give you an idea how open I am. I've been able to make it work apparently as my scores haven't been bad but trying to get better and this is the next step for me.

If I'm reading into this correctly , we can see opining the shoulder is a good thing. It's OK if your power step turns instead of being straight as the other steps. Everyone is different Chris Barnes can open his shoulder without opening / turning his foot. Most power players I'm guessing turn / open their foot somewhat. The main issue is can you keep the ball inline with your head? If the answer is yes then your OK.

If your still looking for a drill to help then work with the 1 step / swing and slide drill keeping your power foot facing straight at the head pin.
