Stance width for broad shoulders?

4 posts in this topic

One of my problems when it comes to consistency among other things is my stance width. I have wide broad shoulders and tend to stand wider than most my size.

i played baseball for 15 years and i feel more stable with a wider stance. my golf stance isnt as wide as a baseball stance for sure. However, im aware how wide i get and try to change up my stance width a lot. i cant get too narrow with my woods or i dont feel stable at all. Im not sure if i should worry more on the so called stance width ppl say to use or if i should just go with a stable stance?

my 6-9 irons, and wedge stances are fairly close but not as close as others.

say from your sw, pw, 9, 8, etc how far in inches do you move?  i tend to stand the same with for all my woods, even my rescue club, should i shorten these stances?

i wonder if width plays in missing left and right of target? not hooks and slices just missing left and right.

I would say you should only stand with a stance as narrow as you feel comfortable with. Missing left and right I don't think has anything to do with stance width so much as maybe ball placement in the stance or your alignment.

I tend to prefer a narrower stance than most. A narrower stance lets you control low point better. Also lets you move your hips forward more easily.

If I remember right, the old saying was wider for power and narrower for accuracy.
