The goal of the golf swing is simple: hit the ball toward a target with the correct distance. Doing that consistently starts with an effective setup — one that makes sense for a golfer’s typical swing, as well as the shot he or she is trying to hit.

The video above shows the top-3 setup flaws I see from my students, as well as how to fix them.

      It’s OK, go ahead and admit that it’s you, you’ll get better quicker if you’re honest with yourself lol

    I watch a lot of Mark’s club reviews on YouTube, but never realized what a great teacher he is til I watched these lessons on GolfWrx. Great stuff. I am very guilty of the first flaw he mentioned in this one.

    Love the video Mark. I think it is great for both beginners and more seasoned amateurs. The beginner may not want to move the ball position around much until they are comfortable with it just ahead of the center, but after feeling comfortable there, moving it around to alter the shot is great. I believe changing the setup to change the shot shape is much better than trying to significantly change the swing. Keep up the good work.
