Set Up to a Balanced Golf Stance

Start by placing the inside of your front foot just ahead of the ball. Since we’re using a driver or 3 wood, the front and back feet should be shoulder width or slightly more than shoulder width apart.

Next, bend at the top of the legs (keep your back straight) and then bend slightly at the knees. The kneecaps will be directly above the balls of your feet.
The angle of your back to the ground will be approximately 45 degrees. Your arms should be hanging straight down from your shoulders.

Posture - Good posture counts. Keep your back straight but don’t tense up. You might think of it as pushing your back pockets higher.
Balance - Your weight should be on the balls of your feet, not on the toes or heels. Likewise, your weight should be equally distributed between your front and back foot. Now you should be more comfortable and less tense. If you’re out of balance, you’re falling down. That’s no way to start a good golf swing.

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.

Load the Weapon
Your setup is athletic, balanced, and relaxed. Now your ready to begin your golf back swing.

You can can choose from three different Golf Grips. It’s your choice and you should choose the golf grip that feels right for you.

Solid basic Golf Swing Steps or golf swing mechanics lead to an easy golf back swing, down swing, and follow through.

The Golf Back Swing - Don't think about your arms. Instead of thinking about my arms and swinging my club , I try to think of my back swing as turning my back to the target. I’m just putting the club behind my back.

My best advice for your Golf Down Swing, with one exception, is to just let it happen! The down swing and follow through should be the very natural result of everything that precedes it.

Golf Swing Summary - I DO still remember the faulty golf swing mechanics and neurotic golf swing thoughts that less than memorable worm burner shot or that weak 70 yard shot off to the right. Here’s my list of golf swing killers.

What little I know about the golf swing is already on these pages, but I’ll be glad to provide whatever Swing Tip Support I can. I'm no expert, and everything I've done here is probably incorrect according every golf aficionado on the planet. But then again, if it works, do you really care?
