I often struggle with my setup, probably because I tend to play too quickly, so I was wondering what routine or sequence you guys use when actually stepping in to address the ball.
Do you ground the club behind the ball, and then settle into your posture "around" the club shaft? Or do you set your posture first, and then move nearer or further from the ball until it is at the club face? Also, to help with ball position and alignment, do you find it better to step up to the ball and place your feet together at first, and then open your stance by moving both feet, or do you step into the ball with one foot, and then immediately place the other foot where it should be?
And do you take your grip before you address the ball, or as the last thing before you begin your swing?
I have seen some guys take ages to finally play their shot, while others seem to simply step up and smack it. I was wondering what works for you.....
