How to make sure you’re standing the correct distance from the golf ball
Standing too close or too far from the ball creates all sorts of negative reactions in your swing, but how do you check to make sure you’re the perfect distance away from the ball? Hamilton Farms GC director of instruction Nick Bova has a simple solution.
Take your setup and then drop your trail hand off the club. If your hand swings away from the grip and toward your body, it means you’re standing too far away. If it moves away from you, it means you’re standing too close. When your hand hangs level with the grip after letting go, you’re perfect.
Go through this checklist if you think your setup is off and you’re bound to fix all sorts of problems.
