Improve Your Golf Swing… steps to get into proper golf stance

Proper Golf Stance 

Proper golf stance is critical to hitting the ball solid. The more your back is curved at address, the more likely you’ll lift up to hit the ball. Lifting up prevents you from hitting the ball with authority. It also robs you of power. Keeping your back straight, on the other hand, promotes consistent contact.

5 Steps To Attaining Proper Golf Stance

1. Stand tall with feet spread apart
2. Hold the club in front of you
3. Bend forward at the hips
4. Flex your knees
5. Stick out your butt

Standing up straight helps maintain balance, a key factor in a good swing. In fact, it’s better to stand too tall than to slouch. Start by standing up straight with the inside of your feet shoulder width apart. Balance your weight on the balls of your feet. And turn your toes out slightly.

Next, hold the club out in front of you. Bend forward from the hips until the club touches the ground. Your back should remain straight. Flex your knees a bit and stick your butt out slightly. Sticking your butt out helps balance you when you bend forward. Try keeping your back straight throughout your swing.

Your quadriceps, the muscles on the front and outside portion of your thighs, supports your swing. To strengthen them, put your back against the wall and slowly lower yourself into a sitting position. Stay there for a few seconds or until your thighs begin to burn. Then push up slowly until your standing. Do this exercise a few times a day and you’ll build those muscles up.

Assuming the proper golf stance is critical to achieving a good swing. Slouching or slumping prevents your making solid contact and robs you of power. Follow the five-step process discussed above you to attain proper golf stance to improve your golf swing every time.
