Practice with a Golf Club On the Ground!
Touring pros put a great deal of effort in their address position. To prove your are never cured of a swing fault or address position fault, notice how so many of the videos we have of touring pros practicing on the range include golf clubs on the ground for alignment purposes.

Now, these are touring pros that most likely have played golf since they were 5 to 7 years old. Yet they still find it necessary to place a golf club on the ground to remind them that they are pointed in the proper direction. I guarantee you that if the rules were to allow it on the golf course they would be doing it there as well.
Improper alignment can, no will, have a very negative influence on your swing path. You know where you want the ball to go so you will adjust your swing path to overcome the improper alignment. Now you have compounded the problem and will spend hours on end repairing the swing path once you finally realize the misalignment.
Make sure you place a golf club on the ground when you practice. Touring pros do it so why shouldn’t you!
