distance hands should be from body

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

been hitting a lot of fat shots and I'm thinking it could be that my hands are to close to my body at address. so I'm wondering whats a good rule of thumb for distance. the end of the club is about 4 inches off my  belt buckle any advise would be helpful.

I remember having read that a hand should be able to pass thru between your belt and where your hands hang. Maybe make a slight alteration for longer clubs, but thats the typical advice I use.

conventional wisdom would seem to suggest that about the distance of a closed fist. Then you have that of  Moe Norman which would seem to defy said wisdom, but it sure worked well for him.  For me, to get there, I just drop my hands down naturally after taking my stance and bending from the waist and find the handle will be just about the right distance from my zipper.
