recreational golfers setup with a different ball position on every
shot. I like to use a constant ball position for every shot and
Too many recreational golfers play their short irons way back
and woods too far forward in their stance.
you move the ball back in your stance, the more you
close your shoulders and take the club inside
The further you play the ball forward in your stance,
the more open your shoulders are at address. You will lose
some of your ability to turn when going back and you will open
up that much sooner coming through.
Position the ball off a point between the center of your chest and
your left shoulder. I use the Nike Swoosh logo on my shirt to help
me position the ball consistently in my stance.
Let the length of the club determine how wide your stance should
be. For example, you must have a narrow stance to reach the ball
with a wedge. As the length of the club gets longer, the more you
move only your right foot back in your stance. Keep the
left foot and ball in the same position, just make your stance
wider by moving your right foot back.
Constant Ball Position will help you setup to the ball in
the same way every time. Try it out and I think you'll find
it will help you hit more consistent golf shots.
