Mike Malaska walks us through Ball Position in The M-System series. Your golf bag has different clubs with different lengths and lofts. So how do you make those adjustments when you set up to the ball? Your setup will determine whether it is easy or more difficult.
The golf industry has multiple ideas and concepts that deal with ball position. Mike is going to show you what has worked for him.
Jack Nicklaus said the ball stayed in the same position relative to his left foot. Jack, however, moved his right foot depending on what club he used, so the ball lined up with the center of his body.
Mike discusses the goal of ball position. Topics he covers are how you set up to the ball and how to make each of the different clubs easier to use, from your driver and middle irons to fairway woods. Each of these clubs that Mike holds comes at a different angle of approach to the ball. The key is to use the same type of consistent motion all the time. How do we then make those adjustments?
Mike will show you how to practice and set up and monitor what’s happening. Visually understanding what the ball looks like in the correct position will help your golf game.
