A lot of new cornhole players ask about aim points, or where they should focus when they throw. The truth is, it’s a lot like putting in golf – different techniques work for different people.
Obviously if you’re trying to airmail, you should aim at the hole. If you’re trying to slide in or push a bag, you should pick a spot on the board where you want your bag to land (allowing for the slide) and aim there. As you learn how your throw moves, you can adjust your aim point with practice. Start out aiming for the middle of the board and adjust from there as you get more consistent.
It might help to keep your eyes on the target, not the bag flight. Also, don’t forget to follow through and finish with your hand pointing up – but also toward your aim point.
