Do you have a challenge topping the ball with your hybrids or fairway woods? Or perhaps you take a huge divot with the same clubs? I know I had challenges in the past with my ball being too far forward in my stance. To hit the ball, I would have to lean forward to ensure I made relatively solid contact. But that all changed many years back when I realized that I was out balance with my follow through. I was fortunate to figure out my error, but I could have saved a great deal of time if I found this video earlier.
It is very simple, the placement of the hybrids and fairway woods in my stance was wrong and now it is correct. The following video provides a simple explanation that will clear up any potential confusion:
When I place the ball in the proper position, my contact is great (I can hear the difference), the ball travels much farther, and my ball flies straighter.
There is value in understanding where to properly place my ball in my swing. However, the value is finding the sweet spot for your own swing. The above video helps as a starting place, but moving the ball an inch or two on either side of your starting point is important. Finding out your ideal position in your stance will go along way to consistently hitting your hybrids and fairway woods; which would lead to lower golf scores.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
