Setup Lessons

As you address the golf ball and prepare to pitch onto the green there are a number of things that have to be in place before you begin the backswing. The ball position plays a huge roll in the arc of the golf shot. If the golf ball is too far back in your stance the golf ball will fly too low. The reason you want to play the golf ball forward in your stance is so the leading edge of the wedge will find the bottom of the golf ball with as much loft on the club as possible. At address you want to have 75% of your weight on left side and make sure the handle of the golf club is across from your belt buckle. These three items are vital to pitching the golf ball with loft.
