The basic golf swing we want to have the same between the irons and the driver. The difference is is we move the driver forward in the stance I now want to catch the ball slightly on the upswing. The problem occurs when we put the ball forward in our stance most people have a tendency to lean out toward the ball.

Everything we do in everyday life, reading, being on the computer, eating, is right in front of our face. As we hear that the ball is supposed to go forward in our stance, with the longer clubs, my face has a tendency to go to the ball. And as my face and my head go forward, that puts me in a position where I’m actually hitting slightly down on the ball. We need to fight that by tilting our spin the other way. Think of your tailbone kind of pointing at your left heel and your head a little bit closer to that right thigh.

Jack Nicolas, when you hit is driver, when he was playing great, his head his face was all the way back on his right knee at address. As I get tilted this way that allows me to catch it later in the swing so the arch is on the way up. So as I’m setting up to the ball, I need to make sure, that my spin is back away from the target. And from that position, now I can go ahead and catch the ball an ascending blow.

So remember, as the ball goes farther forward in the stance, we need to make sure that our spine is still tilted away from the target.
