Weekly Swing Reminder - Athletic Stance

I think one of the most overlooked parts of the golf swing is your stance. You must have a stance that your body can turn on, or you're not going to hit very good golf shots. It's just like if you are playing short stop or linebacker, knees slightly bent, bending forward from the waist. The stance is very important in keeping your balance during the golf swing. If you get your weight too far back, on your heels or too much on your toes, you will not be able to make a good turn. Keep your weight evenly distributed on the balls of your feet. As you bend from the waist, your arms should hang straight down from your shoulders, and hold the club. You should never feel you are reaching for the ball or that your hands are too close to your body. Try it next time you're on the practice range. Have a great golf week.
