Yup, here is what Slaterracing ended up doing:

I am using some neon orange string that construction workers use to rope off for laying concrete. Making the loop in it large enough to be able to move it around to target either side as i am a righty and my son is a lefty. Hope this helps some people if they want to make it for themselves. This one cost me $5.19 including tax. So in my opinion well worth the money.

Not sure if this has been discussed but another targeting tool you can use is similar to the one the op posted except you make it taller and attach a sheet to it. You put it just beyond the arrows. It helps you target further down the lane at the arrows, as well as, tell you if you are rolling over the right line or area.

Be like water making its way through cracks. Don't be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
