The Importance of Stance
Did you know that the position you take before the ball when you are ready to make a stroke has a lot to do with your success in golf?
Stance is the position the golfer takes when he is about to hit the ball. In golf, one of the bases of a good stroke is how we stand before the ball.
Depending on the type of stroke we need to use, we must vary the position a little, playing with the placement of the feet and the height of the upper body (chest/back), always allowing the arms to fall naturally in a relaxed manner. It is important to keep the weight well distributed in the feet between toe and heel, that is, in the arch of the foot. It is also very important to have a good angle from the hips in relation to the back being as straight as possible within our physical possibilities.
So, if you want to become a good golfer and have success when hitting the ball, as a starting point you must distribute your weight 50/50, from heel to toe, as well as an even balance between your legs; always as long as the unevenness of the terrain allows you to.
The correct position before the ball is not easy to achieve, but it should be practised and improved little by little to achieve a perfect technique.
Objectives of a perfect stance
Achieving a good golf stance mainly serves to help your swing and thus be more regular in the stroke of the ball, which in the end is what it is all about. Without good stability, it will be impossible to make a good stroke, as we will lose the angles and the balance, which are the basis of a good swing in golf.
In addition, thanks to a good stance, we facilitate the movement of the arms, trunk, hips, legs and feet, in short, we help the movement of our whole body to execute the stroke. These bases in our placement plus a strategic fluid motion of the golf club guarantee us good strokes and therefore, very good memories.
