I can’t help but think that golfers become unstuck when they try and stand correctly to the ball.

They are determined to get every part of the stance correct. They make sure their posture is right, their stance is square and the ball is located in the perfect postition. For the most part these golfers fail…

They try too hard. They fidget and never get comfortable. They look awkward and become so preoccupied with what they are doing that they forget the main aim – to hit the ball.

I think there is a better way.

Forget everything that you’ve ever read about standing to the ball. This includes alignment and ball position.

I have found that comfort is more important. When you stand comfortably, you give yourself a better chance of making a better swing. This is more valuable than any spine angle tip you’ll read in a golf magazine.

Your subconscious will take care of any minor errors with your aim and ball position. You can keep swinging. Over time you will naturally (without thinking) learn the best positions for you and your swing.

Get comfortable from the start and hit the ball. This is all you have to do. It’s more fun and definitely more interesting than concerning yourself with too much detail.

Good golfing,
