How to take your alignment from the range to the course

You have been practicing on the range diligently to insure you have proper alignment, but you can't lay the clubs or sticks down you have been practicing with on the ground when you are playing.  How do you merge the practice regiment to the course?  Pick a spot approximately 2-3 feet in front of your ball that is on a line with your target, to align the leading edge of your club to, as you address your ball.  Combine this method with your practice regiment for consistency.
