Body to Ball Position

Ball position isn’t relegated to just where it is in your stance. You should also consider where your body is in relation to the ball.

In this video we demonstrate the easiest way to determine how far or close you should stand from the ball. This may seem elementary but if Brooks Keopka spends most of his training sessions on the fundamentals…why shouldn’t we. Let’s get back to basics and ensure that we’re set up to the ball properly.

This method is so quick you can integrate it into your pre-shot routine. As a result you’re going to be able to get into the correct impact position with more ease. This is going to allow more consistency in your ball striking.

    I love Colby’s tips. They are always based on golf fundamentals and not some kooky new theory.

    This is the conventionally way taught to set up for a golf swing and it makes sense.

    Since I’ve hd problems using the conventional way, I decided recently to do a swing makeover and go with the Moe Norman “Single Plane” technique, where you actually do extend your arms out. For whatever reason, I am so much more consistent now using this technique and it feels so much more natural to me. Perhaps it’s because I’m 6’6″ tall with very long arms. No more hitting the outside of the ball and pull hooking the ball.

    Why doesn’t anyone but Todd Graves teach, or even talk about this method?

    I play golf since 70 years ( I’ ve past the 86 mark’)
    I was à scratch player younger ,now a 7 handicapper .
    I too moved from thé conventional set up distance to à more extended upper arme stance ,MOE NORMAN/ TODD GRAVES position .
    My swing plane is more consistent and repeatable this Way.
    No today Golf instructors teach this today ,
    Quite a Pity
    MOE NORMAN was riight

    Good tip. I find that if I feel as if I am crowding the ball (too close) I hit crisper better controlled and longer shots than if I feel I am too far away from the ball. I will have to make a concentrated effort to do the arms hanging straight down during my next practice session.
