To hit the ball properly, the golfer has to know how to hold the club the correct way. A right-handed golfer needs to hold the club at the top of the grip area with his left hand. Then take the small finger of your right hand and put it in the gap between the forefinger and middle finger of your left hand. Align your thumbs down the length of the shaft. You are now ready to swing the club.
Stand about 20-to-24 inches away from the ball and make sure your left shoulder is pointing directly at the target. Your left foot should be underneath your left shoulder. Play the ball midway between your two feet.
You are going to try to hit the ball with the club head at a 90 degree angle at impact. To do this, you start your backswing by rotating your hips all the way to the right. As you move your hips, your hands and shoulders will follow. Once your club has reached shoulder height, you are ready to complete your swing.
Impact and follow through
Drive your hips down and through the hitting zone. As you turn your hips, your hands and shoulders will follow. You should be looking intently on the back of the ball as the club head readies for impact. Keep your head down through contact. Finish your swing by bringing your club up to shoulder level.
