hand will be placed on top of your golf grip and you need to leave a gap of at least half an inch at the top of your grip. The
grip runs diagonally from the meaty pad of your left hand to the first joint of your index finger. Target Hand: you should be able to see 2 knuckles. Non
target hand: you should see 1 knuckle. Palms should be facing each other. The little fingerof your non target

BALL POSITION: Short Irons (Sand Wedge up to 5-iron):
Place ball two balls width to the right of your target foot 4Iron to Driver place ball a ball
width to the right of your target foot.
ALIGNMENT: Clubhead/ clubface
should be pointing at your target. Feet, knees hips and shoulders are parallel to ball to target line.
A common mistake that many golfers make is that they aim their feet at the target which then aims their club face way
right of target.
Take your address position then ask your playing partner to place one club directly behind
the ball and another club across the toe line of both you feet. Now walk out of your address position and go behind
the two clubs and check that your allignment is correct. If I were you I would check this often whether at the driving range
or on the golf course.
TIPS FOR PLAYING GOLF FROM UNEVEN LIES. Side hill Lie with ball above feet: Play the ball in the centre of
your stance. Grip down on the club. Stand up
a little taller. The ball will tend to go left so aim slightly right of target.
Side hill lie with ball
below feet: Play the ball in the centre of your stance. Bend your knees more than normal. Ball will tend to go right so aim slightly
left of target. Keep your knees bent through impact.
Uphill lie: Play ball slightly forward in your stance. Tilt your shoulders with the hill.
Use an extra club here as you have added loft to the club by tilting your shoulders.The ball will go higher than normal.
Downhill Lie: Play ball slightly back in your stance.
Tilt your shoulders with the hill. You may need
to use a club less as you have de-lofted the club by tilting your shoulders which will
make the ball go farther.
The ball flight will be lower than normal.
Grip, Aim, Alignment, Stance and Posture. Always check your basic fundamentals.
