Golf Ball Position at Setup


Hey guys Chuck Quinton here founder of RotarySwing.com today's 60 second golf tip is all about ball position. Most golfers believe that you should move the ball back and forth in your stance depending on the club you have in your hand. Simply not true. The ball position should always be in the same place for every club in the bag except for the driver which is a specialty club.

Why does that make any sense? Well if you understand the key pivot points in the golf swing in this case we're going to talk about our shoulders. The golf club is really moving from your shoulder. And so if I'm swinging left arm dominant like you should be in the golf swing if your right handed a golfer that pivot point is going to make the bottom of my swing arc the center of my shoulder socket which is going to be way forward in my stance. Now of course when I put my right hand on the club it's going to balance it out and move it back a little bit which is going to move back to just about the inside of your left armpit. So when you have both hands on the club the bottom of your swing arc is dictated by the pivot points not the length of the shaft it doesn't matter if I grab a driver or wedge the bottom of my swing arc is determined by my body, my anatomy and the physics of the swing not the length of the shaft.

So if that makes sense to you and you want understand more about the fundamentals of the golf swing check out this bonus video. It's going to really help bring some of these key points home for you.
