Help from wife

3 posts in this topic

While on vacation my wife noticed that my shoulders and hips were open while hitting balls at a range. She told me to close my stance some and everything lined up and I was hitting the ball at the target and not pulls to the left. Is it ok to have a closed stance to line up correctly?

Or you can close your hips and shoulders at address so they are square and see if that works for ya'.

If you are hitting the ball more accurately with a closed stance, then it is not a bad thing. Successful golfers for many decades have used closed, open and square stances with regards to their line of play. That said, I believe more golfers use the square stance, than the other two.

I know in my own game I use a square stance most of the time, but there are some shots where I will use an open, or closed stance to get a desired ball flight.

You are lucky to have a wife who can help you out with your golf swing. :dance:
