Tip of the Week Series – Proper Setup of Golf Swing Part 4 February 6, 2013

Ball position in relation to our feet is very important in determining at which point the club will make contact with the golf ball.

If the ball is positioned too far forward, the club will reach the ball after it is already swinging back to the left, causing the player to pull the ball and possibly start slicing.

Position the ball too far back and the club will reach the ball as it is still swinging to the right, causing the player to start pushing the ball and possibly start hooking.

If you are pushing or pulling, experiment with your ball position to find the correct placement and start hitting your shots straighter.
