The inclement weather has certainly put a damper on the spring golf season. Most golfers are not near where they were last year in regards to their game. Fortunately, the cool weather is behind us now and we can focus on our games.
As more and more golfers are getting to the practice range for lessons, I am finding many similar faults that mostly involve the set-up.
This refers to how we are actually addressing the golf ball. There should be very little flex in the knees at address. Hips should have a slight tilt. I am looking for correct posture. Too many golfers tend to have too much bend and therefore somewhat crowd the golf ball. This will greatly affect the proper turn.
The head at address needs to be slightly tilted behind the ball to insure that at impact the head will be behind the ball. The next area of concern is the distribution of your weight. This must remain on the balls of your feet, not your toes, which could result in a push or fade, and not your heels which could result in a draw or a hook.
