The address position is the only time in the golf swing when you are in 100% control.  

You are in control of your grip, width of stance, ball position, spine angle, and alignment.  So if this is the case, why not be 100% correct 100% of the time!  Why, then, is this something most people get wrong?  Standing the correct distance from the ball is a good place to start!

 

  • Address the golf ball and lock your knees – so there is no flex in your knees at all. You should feel your weight shift towards your heels.
  • Now, just flex your knees slightly until you feel your weight shift from your heels towards the balls of your feet. When you feel your weight is balanced over the center of your feet, that’s enough knee flex.
  • Take the chosen club and lower it onto your front thigh. The club should touch about 1 inch above your kneecap. If this doesn’t happen, alter your distance to the golf ball as necessary.
  • Remember not to flex or straighten your leg to get the club resting an inch above the kneecap – you need to move your feet further or closer to the ball.
