Don't mess up your game by messing up your stance. One easy way to correct your stance is to practice your stance without a club. Stand with your knees slightly flexed and bent at the waist, let your arms fall in the front of you naturally. Hold your hands together as you maintain this stance. All these elements comprise natural positioning, and if you feel discomfort, you are probably compensating for something too much. BrainFire One of the more common golf problems is the slice, but practice makes perfect. Slicing is caused by the club hitting the ball incorrectly, which makes it curve to the right. Line your entire body up in a fluent stance that is parallel to your target, from your shoulders to your toes. Only move with the force of your hands and arms when you make the actual stroke, rather than the weight of your body or pivoting shoulders.
