Swing Foundation: Lesson #4
Take The Mystery Out of Finding The Perfect Distance From The Ball With This Simple Trick
Welcome back! This is the fourth 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 find the proper distance from the ball. The space between you and the golf ball at address can play a major role in how well you strike it. Reaching for a ball that’s too far away puts excess weight on the toes, causing a multitude of swing problems (pushed shots, topped balls and even shanks). Stand too close and you’ll back up on your heels during your swing, resulting in poor contact.
I’ve got a trick here that takes the guess work out of finding the perfect distance!
Take your 3-point stance. The end of the club will point right to your belt buckle.
Take your left hand off the club. Put your thumb on top of your index finger, forming a fist. Slide your fist from side to side between the end of the club and your belt buckle. If you are too close to the ball, you will hit the end of the club, and if you are too far away from the ball, you will have too much space.
Check back for tomorrow’s lesson where I explain how to find the perfect distance from the ball.
