Part B - Basic Fundamentals and Concepts in Golf Swing Technique (continued)
It's best to start with a short iron when learning
to swing, as these shorter clubs are far more forgiving and manageable than the longer clubs and
it is much more likely that you will have success with them.
Align the club face perpendicular to the
target line and your body parallel to the
target line (see picture).
Stand with your heels about the same width as your shoulders, spine bent forward
from the hips with your knees flexed in a balanced, ready position -- weight evenly distributed between both feet and between heels and toes (see pictures).
