Why the Proper Golf Set Up will Improve Your Game
In the 'Eight Step Swing,' I talked about the universal fundamental, which is setup. I call it universal because every teacher that I have ever listed to or read about has talked about the importance of getting set correctly, positioning the ball properly and getting off to a good start.
How to Close the Golf Club Every Time
So from this front view I want to talk to you about a few simple things you can do to set up correctly or close to correctly each time. Number one, when you go to set up, I would like to see you take the club in your right hand and place it behind the golf ball, aim your golf club at the target, then you can put your left hand on it.
But when you put the right hand on you will always you're your shoulders very open, you will also have your right foot forward, and this allows you to aim and align much easier. Now from here you take your first step with your front foot, always this foot, right into position. That is going to determine your ball position.
How to Position the Ball Behind Your Heel
So if you want the ball three to four inches behind your heel then you will take a three or four inch step. If you wanted to hit your driver you would just take a small step and then you would drop your right foot back into position. This will allow you to always check your ball position off of your left foot.
So you come in this way, drop the left foot into position and then the right foot. That will allow you always to get into systematic approach to being ready to hit the ball the same way time after time with a repetitive system for aiming and setting up. Hope those tips help you.
