|GOLF INSTRUCTION - ALIGNMENT, TEMPO, BALL POSITIONS AND HORSEPOWER|
FORT PIERCE, Florida - Everyone is different in terms of what's comfortable to them. Look at Graeme McDowell, he positions the ball farther back in his stance than anyone I can remember seeing. Learning how to develop a good golf swing is easy. Once you discover the geometrics - things like alignment, tempo, ball positions - that work for you, it will all start to come together. Maybe playing the ball farther back or setting up closer to the ball. It's all geometry and physics.
How hard you want to swing is another determining factor with regard to set-up. Add a little horsepower to one of your efforts off the tee without proper compensation in alignment and/or ball position, and you will probably wind up OB left if you came through the shot-or OB right if your upper body outraced your bottom half. Hey, sometimes you just want to crush the ball, right? So do I.
Regarding practicing your golf swing instruction, especially in the beginning stages of learning the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing. Just take an eight-iron out there, tee up the ball and become familiar with your swing.
