Swing Map: Understanding the Set Up

Using the swing map allows you to understand the definitions of the golf swing and I would like to now move on to the basic set-up. When you set-up to the ball, it is very important how you position your body in the address position. What happens in your balance and swing play, from the face on view, how you stand in relation to the weight on either foot, how you angle the spine, looking from the target line view, how far away from the ball you stand and also the angles you set at your knees, hips, and shoulders. This would of course affect both balance and swing plane. Understanding the basic definition of the set-up will help you understand your way through the swing map.

Short Putt Tee Drill Narrow down your focus on short putts by putting to a tee and trying to hit it dead on, this makes your short putts much more exact and gives you tremendous confidence when you are on the course putting to what looks like an enormous hole
Two Pivot Swing The golf swing does not pivot around the head or spine, the head moves in the backswing and both the right and left leg are pivot points in the swing
Cure For Toe Shots: Scooping Scooping the ball results in a toe shot because it causes your left wrist to bend at impact and your right wrist to straighten, thus changing your swing radius
