Golf is without a doubt an honorable game, and nowadays not only men play it, but women as well, due to the fact that it is very relaxing. If you are interested in improving your game, then here is how to achieve a proper golf stance.
What is the correct alignment?
Your eyes, shoulders, forearms, hips, knees and feet must be positioned parallel to your target line. You will probably not be able to stay in the correct position for the first time, but by persevering, you will certainly obtain the desired result. For the correct width of your stance, get a club and measure the width of your shoulders. The insights of your feet should be at least that wide apart for all your full shots. For short wedges and irons, you will have to reduce your stance width by two inches. Another important detail that you need to take into account in order to obtain the desired result is the fact that you need to point the toes out at too much of an angle. You can slightly angle outwards your front foot whereas the rear foot must be at right angles to your target line. Remember that you must not bent your knees. The only thing you are allowed to do is to lightly flex them. For most shots, the weight of your body must be 50/50 between the heels and the toes, and 50/50 between the right and the left foot. Therefore, make sure that you actually put into practice this important advice. When it comes to the chin, you must make sure that you keep it up at all times. By doing so, you will encourage a great shoulder turn, which will help you make the perfect shot. Moreover, your head must also be tipped at the same angle as your spine. Another important detail is that you need to focus on the inside part of the ball’s back. A correct alignment means that your shoulders and your back must form a triangle, and your elbows must point to the hips. These are essential details that you must have in mind if you really want to improve your game. If you seriously follow them, you will definitely achieve a proper golf stance.
What else must be done?
Once you have managed to stay in the correct position, there is another essential detail that you must take into account, in order to achieve your goal. You must be extremely relaxed so that you can focus 100% on your shot. Your muscles must be relaxed, and your mind as well. By doing so, you can be sure that you will obtain the desired result.
