Alignment - A line drawn across the front of your feet should point to your target. You may want to check this by first placing your club up against the toes of your feet and then step back and see if the club is really pointing to your target. This is your target line and your knees, hips, and shoulders should also be parallel to this line.
One slight adjustment will be the position of your shoulders. When you assume the proper golf stance and grip, your club and left arm will form a straight line between your shoulder and the ball. For this to happen, your right shoulder will be slightly lower to the ground than the left, but a line through your shoulders should still be parallel to the target line.
Be Balanced and Be Comfortable
Once you grip the club and take your stance at the ball, find a way to relax and loosen up before you start your swing. As I mentioned before, I bounce up and down and wiggle my
butt rear back and forth slightly just to be sure I’m loose and balanced. Hey, it’s better to have my buddies laugh at me before I hit the ball than after I hit it.
