Good Footwork Leads to Better Shot Making

In my career as a top college player and PGA Tour player, one of the things that I worked hard on was having good footwork and good balance in my swing.

The importance of good fundamentals in my set-up and starting the club back correctly cannot be over-stated. It is equally important to have good footwork which starts with your feet the proper width apart - inside of the heels=outside of shoulders.

I can remember my teacher having me practice rolling my left foot and knee toward my right foot as the upper body turns and my left arm extends back on the backswing. He did not want me lifting my left heel nor having my knee come out toward the ball.

THOUGHTS ON HOW TO TAKE YOUR GAME FROM THE LESSON/PRACTICE TEE TO THE GOLF COURSE

As a PGA instructor, a common comment I get on the lesson tee is that I hit the ball great on the practice tee but then I can’t take it to the course. I have had the same experience myself. Golf is a funny game that way. There are a few stages to becoming a more proficient player and different ways to take your “A” game to the course.
