Alignment is aiming your club and body towards your target. If your alignment is incorrect, the best swing in the world will not get the ball to your target.

2. Foot Position (Stance):

Your stance or how to place your feet are essential to good weight transfer. Hitting the ball far requires two things:

1. Good weight transfer.
2. Club head speed.

Placing your feet in the right manner will promote good weight transfer and will position yourself in a better position.

The most neglected aspect of the golf swing is the posture. This aspect can help you to be consistent in making your shots. The golfer needs to develop a repetitive swing in order to obtain consistently desired results. If the golfer can adopt a proper position where the head, spine, hips, legs and arms are always positioned correctly during the swing, he/she will be able to accelerate the learning process. By changing the angle of your back or knees, you will create inconsistent results. I will show you how to train your body with educational drills and build a strong posture which will help you get the desired results from your golf swing.

Without a good posture, you will have a hard time to obtain a perfect golf swing.

DCF 1.05. The Grip:

Finally, how to place your hands on the club. Where are the pressure points? Does the grip affect the direction of your shots? The grip is the only link from your body to the club. Let’s learn how to place your hands correctly on the club. How tight should we hold the club and why is it important to keep constant pressure during the entire swing?  There are some variations to holding the club. The golfer can choose the one he/she prefers but from these preferences, similar aspects of holding the club remain the same.

Don’t forget:
