You’ll notice that many people who talk about the golf swing don’t even have a standard set-up or address formula for making a swing.
It’s almost as if they’re saying, “Stand any old way, and then we’ll deal with the swing flaws as they come up…”
But the problem is, the address stance is the starting point for the swing, and if it didn’t matter, then you wouldn’t see that all of the greatest swingers were all about 85-95% in accordance with each other and with the MCS address position.
There are always variables with individuals, but I’ve said many times, the Ben Hogan/Jack Nicklaus/Sam Snead address set-ups were nearly identical in the important areas.
And, only a day afterwards, I got this email from him, which reads in part:
Just been out hitting a few. I just love it!!
So smooth and providing I got the set up right everything followed.
And there you have it, my friends – if you’re having swing issues and you think you’re doing everything properly with regards to the Swing Angle and the actual mechanics – check your address position, and I mean check it thoroughly.
Both the face-on position and the down-line…
And your answer to what ails you will likely be found in that…
