Video Golf Tip | Golf Swing Setup Options

Let’s talk about getting you set up to play your best golf. If you are accustomed to standing up taller to hit a golf ball you are going to be standing closer to the golf ball. You are also going to be swinging your arms a little bit more up and down. If you like swinging your arms around, in the backswing and in the through-swing, if you played sports that did that for you like baseball, hockey or tennis, well then to swing your golf club around you and still hit a golf ball you are going to have to be bent over more at address. So as you bend over you will also find that you might be standing a little bit farther from the golf ball. This would be a set up for a single plane swing where the arms are traveling around the body. So you will bend over more, you will be further from the ball and you also might notice that the toe of the club is kicked up in the air a little bit. It might help you draw the ball if you have never drawn it before. If you hook the ball too much, you might need to get them adjusted. Bend over more for your one-plane swing and you will find your way to better golf. Best of luck.
