Golf Basics


The way you set up your stance and grip your club can have a direct effect on your golf swing and shot. Many amateur golfers can eliminate poor swings just by making a proper hand grip adjustment and positioning of their feet.

  • Club Grip
  • Clubface Alignment
  • Ball Position
  • Width Stance & Body Alignment
  • Posture
  • Balance & Weight Distribution


Proper feet and hand adjustments will promote the proper balance and hip turn throughout the swing. Both proper balance and hip turn are necessary for making a consistently good swing.

Basic Club Grip

Grip the club as demonstrated in photo image and step up to the ball with your feet together (see diagram above). Square the clubface to your target before taking your stance, then take a shoulder-width stance and position the ball properly.

Putting Grip

The most common putting grip taught by golf instructors is the reverse overlap grip. It’s called reverse overlap because the left index finger rests on top of the right pinkie finger (for right-handed golfers) instead of a normal overlap grip where the right pinkie finger rests on top of the left index finger.
