Get your Golf Address and Ball Position Correct 100% of the Time!

Your golf address and ball position in the golf swing is the only time you are in 100% control.  You are in control of your grip, posture, ball position, distance from the ball and spine angle.  So, if you are in 100% control, you might as well be 100% correct 100% of the time!

Straight Spine: Take a golf club (preferably the driver) and place it on your back with the grip of the club against the base of your spine and the shaft against the back of your head.  Now bend forward until you are bent slightly from the waist.  Now you know for sure that your spine is straight.

Spine Angle: Take your bottom hand off the club and place it on the thigh of the rear leg.  Move the hand up or down until the index finger touches the top of your kneecap.  This will set your spine angle correctly for your particular height.

Distance from the ball: Now let your rear arm hang at 90 degrees from your shoulders  Move the club until the space on the grip where your lower hand is placed on the club matches where your rear hand is hanging.  Place your hand on the club and take your grip.

Ball Position: The ball position for all the irons is 2″ inside your lead foot.  The position for the fairway woods is directly off the heel of your lead foot and the ball position for the driver is off the instep of the lead foot.  Flair your lead foot out slightly as this will make clearing the hips much easier through impact while you are swinging the club.
