Improper ball position will cause erratic ball flight and it all depends
upon the position of the club face at impact. Each golf club is made to do
a specific job and is constructed accordingly.
With the ball set one inch
to the right of your left heel, starting with the pitching wedge, the ball
should appear just left of center of your stance. With each progressive
club, the right foot moves to the right slightly until the clubface is
square to the target line. Never is the clubface adjusted by the movement
of your hands.
You can see this more readily if you do this now with a
wedge and a three iron. Set up first with the wedge and then with the three
iron without moving your feet. Notice that the 3 iron appears open. Simply
move your right foot to the right until the 3 iron is square to the target
line. Also be aware that because the 3 iron is longer, you will have to
step back away from the ball to maintain the proper posture.
