Cure For Push Shots: Ball Position Playing the ball too far back in your stance causes you to make contact while the club is still swinging to the right of the target
Controlling Distance: Swing Softly Take swings trying to just hum while keeping the tempo and volume of the hum constant
Factors for Ball Position The position of the ball in your stance is determined by your swing shape and the club you are hitting. Your wedge should be near the center of your stance and your driver should be off your front heel.
