While on vacation my wife noticed that my shoulders and hips were open while hitting balls at a range. She told me to close my stance some and everything lined up and I was hitting the ball at the target and not pulls to the left. Is it ok to have a closed stance to line up correctly?

If you are hitting the ball more accurately with a closed stance, then it is not a bad thing. Successful golfers for many decades have used closed, open and square stances with regards to their line of play. That said, I believe more golfers use the square stance, than the other two.
I know in my own game I use a square stance most of the time, but there are some shots where I will use an open, or closed stance to get a desired ball flight.
