Ball Position by Tim Peightal, PGA Professional.
This is something
that I think is very overlooked or just taken for granted. I feel it is
extremely important to know where the ball is relative to the bottom of the
swing, that spot may differ from player to player, because of the amount of
foward lateral movement each player has. ( You need to find the best position
for you.) On all full shots that are uninhibited or not in some type of awkward
lie the ball position should be slightly ahead of center to about 3 inches
ahead of center according to the length of the club.
The ball position
should be ahead in the stance so when you redirect the swing the club will
start foward and decend on its foward approach to the ball. This will produce
forward and downward pressure on the ball, making the ball start down your
Here's how to determine where the ball is relative to your
feet. Place two clubs on the gound forming a small letter t. The one that is
parrallel to your target is your foot line, place your toes along this club.
The one that is perpendicular should be placed to indicate the center of your
stance. Now start with the ball slightly ahead of this point for your iron
shots and work foward up to about three inches for your driver. Remember on all
full shots the ball should be between your front heel and the club that is at
the center of your feet. Try it I'm sure you will like it.
