Proper stance, posture, and ball-position

Taking the proper stance with proper posture and ball position, often referred to as addressing the ball, is fundamental to a good and successful golf swing. If you consider that every action or movement is dictated to by one that comes before it, then the stance affects everything that comes after it including, importantly, the strike of the golf ball.

Again, as with the grip, the amount of attention golfers give to the stance, to posture, and to ball-position is normally far less than they should. You can correct this now by learning more about a proper golf stance from the videos below.
