Tips From The Pro:
A - ALIGNMENT
Technology has shown us that the direction of the golf ball is directly influenced by the direction of your club face at impact. Make sure your club is pointed where you want the ball to go!
B - BALL POSITION
Starting with the driver, the ball should be positioned on your left big toe (for right handed golfers) and then move it back one ball width for fairway woods, one more for long irons (4, 5 and 6) and one more for short irons (7, 8, 9 and wedges), which should put you right in the middle to slightly back of your stance.
C - CONTACT
Making contact on the center of the club face (or sweet spot) is very important for both distance and direction. You can use a dry erase marker or Dr. Scholl's foot spray to show where contact is being made. Once you realize your tendencies, toe hit vs. heel hit or low on the club face vs. high, you can make adjustments and corrections as needed!
Practice, Practice, Practice!
