Each Thursday, we will talk about the technical aspects of the golf swing.  Starting today with the most important aspect – the address position!  The address position comprises alignment, ball position, grip, posture, and distance from the ball.  If you are looking to play more consistent golf, make sure you start with your address position.  Remember, your address position is the only time you are in 100% control in the golf swing.   If that is the case, then make sure you are 100% correct 100% of the time!

Alignment Sticks.

Using alignment sticks to help you, you can put one alignment stick on the body line and another at 90 degrees to help you with the ball position.  Then check your posture.  Let go of the club with your rear arm and allow it to hang comfortably at 90 degrees to your shoulder.  Place the palm on the rear thigh and allow the index finger to touch the top of the kneecap.  That is the correct posture for your body. 

Each person has different length arms and legs. This will put you in YOUR correct posture.  Bring your rear arm across and take your grip.  Now your posture is correct, your alignment is correct, your distance from the ball is correct.  Do this over and over on the range with each shot.  This will eventually become a habit, and your setup will be the same over and over on the golf course. Combine that with yesterday’s pre-shot routine, and you’re ready to pull the trigger!
