02-03: SET UP
As suggested last month a big key to controlling the ball flight is through adjusting the setup to match the intended trajectory. And of course before setting up we need to have a clear image of our intended shot and desired outcome with then selecting the appropriate club, e.g. 9 iron, pitching wedge or 52 degree wedge to help create this shot?
Set up keys: • Hold down the grip and stand closer to the ball with the shaft more upright than normal. • Position your feet narrower than normal with them either aiming parallel or slightly open to your target line. • Ball position centre of
slightly behind centre. • Balance favouring your target or front foot, e.g. 60 / 40 • Shaft leaning slightly forward. However please know that this will happen automatically due to the above mentioned ball position and balance. Note also how my sternum and hands are now slightly ahead of the ball in pic 2
