Set up, the right way

Improving your golf posture and setup position can significantly impact your game. Here are some tips to address poor posture and achieve a solid setup:

1. Stand Tall: Maintain an upright posture with your spine reliever straight and your shoulders relaxed. Avoid slouching or hunching over the ball.

2. Proper Spacing: Position your feet shoulder-width apart for mid irons or slightly wider for longer clubs to create a stable base.

3. Bend from Hips and Knees: Hinge from your hips and slightly bend your knees, maintaining a balanced and athletic stance.

4. Ball Position: Place the golf ball in line with your lead ear to promote proper ball contact. When on a tee, make sure the ball is lined up in line with your lead foot.

5. Grip: Hold the club with a relaxed grip, ensuring your hands work together as a unit.

6. Square Shoulders: Align your shoulders parallel to the target line, helping you aim correctly.

7. Eye Level: Keep your eyes level with the ball or just slightly above it, so you can see the ball clearly without straining your neck.

8. Spine Angle: Tilt your spine slightly away from the target to set up for a proper swing.

9. Weight Distribution: Balance your weight evenly between both feet, ready to transfer it during the swing.

10. Practice: Regularly work on your setup position with a mirror or seek feedback from a PGA golf instructor at to fine-tune your posture.

Remember, a solid setup can set the foundation for a better swing and improved performance on the golf course. Consistency and practice are key to making these adjustments a natural part of your game.
