Tip no. 2 - The Set Up
with Pachesham Golf Academy

A great many problems in golf start before you even swing the club.
Understand the basics of alignment, and get yourself a relaxed, balanced posture, with good angles in the set-up position, and you're already a long way towards playing good golf!

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

Players who set up with the weight distributed in the heels with poor spinal tilt will often struggle with poor rotation of the body this can lead to the club being trapped inside the line as the arms have no room to swing through the ball.

A good posture, with the weight on the balls of the feet, will create room for the hips and torso to rotate in the downswing, leading to the arms swinging on a better path out in front of the body.

This will improve your consistency of strike and direction.
