6 Quick Steps to a Perfect Address
Use this checklist to set up for more consistent ballstriking
By Scott Sackett
This story is for you if...
• Your poor shots are either fat or thin
• You just never get in a consistent groove
• You blame bad shots on your swing without considering your address position
THE PROBLEM The quality of your ballstriking is inconsistent, with a tendency to hit your irons fat or thin.
THE SOLUTION As Jack Nicklaus once said, "If you set up correctly, there's a good chance you'll hit a reasonable shot, even if you make a mediocre swing. If you set up to the ball poorly, you'll hit a lousy shot even if you make the greatest swing in the world."
If it's a struggle for you to be consistent, follow this six-point checklist to get your address position perfect for solid shots.
1. Step up to the ball with your feet together and your club in the air in front of you.
