Video Notes and Summary

  • For those of you new to golf, I will walk you through the beginning steps of picking up golf.
  • In today’s lesson, I will go over the setup starting with the stance. I recommend using the 7 iron when practicing the tips in the tutorial.
  • When you begin with your stance, you should remember to do 2 things properly, bend over from the hips and bend the knees.
  • The angles of both of these steps need to be precise. The drills in this lesson will help you properly get set up.
  • When you bend over, do not slouch and make a “C-posture”, this will cause potential injury and ruin the consistency of your swing.
  • You want to keep your back as neutral as possible to also avoid the “S-Posture” (too much curve in your back).
  • You want to also make sure your weight distribution is correct so you don’t lose your setup angles. You want the weight in the balls of your feet so you can stay down on your angles easier.
  • 3 things to remember:
    • Keep your back straight
    • Your head points between 1 and 2 o’clock
    • Weight should be in the front part of your heels
  • Do not bend your knees and feel like you are sitting down. This must be avoided. You should feel like you are pressing on the balls of your feet.
  • Avoid pointing your knees inward. They should be pointing the same direction of your toes.
  • Make sure your torso bending over is deeper than your knee angle.
  • Drill: Drop your club from your armpit to your feet. The club should pass your knees into the middle/front part of your feet.
  • These steps should be repeated until you are comfortable with the setup. You should practice in the mirror so you know you have the correct position and angles.

  3. Hi Aimee, watching you from Australia! Love your videos very much. I have just started to play at age 44 and you are giving me hope that I will be able to play along with my husband and 11 year old son! Great to watch a female athlete with so much knowledge about the game who’s willing to inspire others. Well done.

  5. Hi Aimee,
    I’ve been looking at golf lessons on YouTube, and only now came across your videos.
    I just want to say that I love your lessons. I am a beginner and tried a few private lessons, but I can’t say I benefited much. You explain things perfectly.
    Thank you very much!
