Video Golf Tip | Address vs. Impact
By Margaret Platt-Klaus

Hi, I am Margaret Platt-Klaus and I work at the Jim McLean Golf School in sunny Miami, Florida, at the Doral Resort and Spa. Today we are going to talk about the difference between setup and impact. There is a big difference between setup and impact. At setup, our weight is 50-50 between our legs, very balanced in the center of the body and we have our head pretty much over the center of the golf ball. At impact it is vastly different. We have our weight completely on the front foot, or the left side, we have the hands forward, our right knee is kicked in and our right heel is slightly off the ground. Take this tip with you to the golf course, try to visualize your impact and you will have a good round.
