Speaker 1: Let's talk about ball position throughout the set, because I think there's a lot of confusion about where you should play the ball with the driver versus an iron versus where you should play it with a wedge.
Here's what I want you to keep in mind, you're the constant.
You just simply get set up and clap your hands together in front of your body and let the club hit the ground and the manufacturer takes care of the rest of it.
In other words, if you look at where the golf shaft enters the club and where the face is, the face with the driver is quite forward of the shaft.
The face with the five iron, if you look closely, is darn near right in the middle of the shaft.
Now watch this.
When I look at the shaft and then where you strike the ball with an iron, you can see it's behind the shaft.
If I just simply place the club on the ground, the way that they're manufactured pretty much dictates where the ball placement should be.
Obviously the ball does move throughout the set.
The driver's going to be a little more forward in the set than the wedge is and a little more forward than the iron is, but you can see it only moves throughout the set about this much.
If you try to play, oh, I'm supposed to play my wedges back off my back foot and I know my driver's supposed to be off my lead toe, you get this crazy bottom of the swing that's way too wide and just destroys your chance for consistency.
My suggestion is keep it simple, play the ball where the club dictates by just setting on the ground and keeping your hands clapped in front of your body like this and you'll simplify your entire golf game.
