Ad­dress faults

Golf Monthly - - Instructions -

As with most is­sues in the golf swing, poor strikes usu­ally stem from mis­takes at ad­dress. The num­ber-one fault to look out for is set­ting the ball too far for­ward. This causes your hands to be too far back, en­cour­ag­ing a ground­first strike. The other is­sue to look out for is poor pos­ture. Unath­letic, lazy set-up po­si­tions make good strikes al­most im­pos­si­ble. En­sure your back is straight at ad­dress – set your body over the ball by hing­ing at the hips. So start by check­ing your ball po­si­tion is not too far for­ward and that you have an ath­letic pos­ture. Nine times out of ten, this is where the prob­lem lies!
