Excerpt from Leadbetter's Quick Tips by David Leadbetter
Improving your fundamentals ' which starts with how you set up and address the ball ' can go a long way toward improving your dynamics (how you actually hit the ball).
It's absolutely necessary to develop an athletic "ready" position at address to make a good, repeatable swing that allows you to strike the ball solidly.
Here are my best quick tips to help you set up properly, develop a grip that's right for your game, get aligned accurately and focus precisely on your target.
Getting Started: Pre-Swing Fundamentals Every good golf shot begins with a solid foundation
The proper setup in golf is all-important. It forms the foundation for a consistent, repetitive swing. If your grip is faulty, or your address position is flawed, you'll have to perform compensations to hit the ball solidly.
I was not a big fan of geometry in school, but in teaching the game of golf, I've come to realize the importance of it. Whether the subject is body angles or shaft plane or clubface angle, being aware of the geometry of the swing is a big factor in learning to play consistent golf.
The greatest awareness of golf's geometry should be at address: That's when you are getting the clubface square, or perpendicular, to the target and creating the proper angles formed by the forward-leaning upper body in relation to the shaft, hanging arms and lower body.
Adopting a good posture is what it's all about. Observe Retief Goosen just after impact (left). The angle formed by the right side of his body is almost a replica of the position he was in at address. His body is more open to the target than it was initially, but by retaining the original angle, it's hard for him to hit too many wild shots. And improving the quality of your bad shots is the key to scoring your best, whether you're a world-class pro or weekend golfer.
