How to Position the Feet in the Golf Swing

Proper foot position at the finish.

The way you set up your stance can have a direct effect on your golf swing and shot. Amateur golfers too often set up in a position that makes a proper swing difficult to execute.

Many of these amateur golfers can eliminate poor swings just by making an adjustment in the positioning of their feet.

Positioning your feet correctly 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.

Establish a 50-50 weight distribution on each foot before taking the club back. Too much weight on one foot will keep you from making a proper weight shift.

Center your weight on each foot. You should not be on your toes or heels.
