Swing Foundation: Lesson #3
This Key 3-Point Stance Sets The Tone For Your Takeaway And Backswing
Welcome back! This is the third of seven lessons I’ve prepared for you about the fundamentals you’ll need before learning the two steps golf swing. If you missed my last lesson, you can find it by clicking here.
Today, I’d like to show you how to create the 3-Point Stance. The perfect setup sets the tone for your takeaway and backswing.
When you setup to it, make sure your stance is the width of your shoulders. Bring your arms in front of your body, creating an “L” with your right arm and the shaft. Your back should be relatively straight.
While maintaining the “L”, lock your knees and drop your arms so that the club is parallel to the ground.
Keeping your knees locked, tilt from your hips so that the club is 15 inches above the ground.
Slightly unlock your knees.
Unhinge your wrist. The end of club points to your belt buckle. This is the 3-point stance since the shoulders, kneecaps, and balls of the feet all line up.
Check back for tomorrow’s lesson where I explain how to find the perfect distance from the ball.
Until then, if you are ready to develop a perfect golf swing in two easy steps, go ahead and check out my Two Steps to a Perfect Golf Swing Professional Training System. Just click the link below to be on your way to better scores.

Have you tried personally the new Taylor made clubs with the speed pocket, were they really longer or was this gust a gimick?
Phil–I have not.
You mentioned the different grips yesterday.I’ve always used an over lapping grip.I had carpal tunnel surgery last August.I have lost some of my feeling in my right hand.I can still hit the ball pretty good.I was wondering if an inter locking grip may help?
I feel most comfortable with a 10 finger (baseball bat) grip. What problems will this grip cause?
Dave–I don’t teach nor recommend a baseball grip. Baseball grips are designed for baseball bats not golf clubs. You want the hands working together as one unit. As oppose to seperate and the right hand taking over.
Shawn you’re a great communicator.I am having success hitting by pushing my left shoulder in and my right back my arms straight,then hinging my wrist and making sure my thumbs are on the underneath side when I’m at the top of my swing.Thank you for the tips.would love to buy your video but don’t have a credit card!
Shawn ,You stand very much erect:what bending do you recommend for THE knees ?Many golf teachers tell you to “sit on a bar stool “.Doing so I am mich lower in my stance than what you demonstrate .What is THE proper position to have at address ?
Raymond–I’ve never sat on a bar stool to hit a golf shot. That’s old school teaching. If you get my new DVD Training System (Repeating Swing Blue Print) I take you through every part of the setup–creating the 3 point dynamic setup as well build your foundation, backswing, downswing, impact, and follow-through. This training system will really help you.
Great video on the set up that is easy to repeat and simple.
Joe–thank you. We will keep them coming.
Shawn,A few years ago I purchased your disc on How to build a Repeating Swing and your book The two steps for a perfect golf swing.I learned alot then but over time strayed off your method. I recently reviewed both and found that I had not been practicing your ideas on how to swing the club. I quess I got caught with the body motion leading the arms and now I am trying to go back to your method. Is there a way for you to review my efforts (on film) to see how far off I may be with your technique? I am an 80 yr old man who still carries a 12 hndcp on 6064 yrd course in Ft. Myers, Fl.
Can you show us a peak preview of the Two Steps DVD or tell me whats on it?I’d like to buy one but would like a little more information.
