Golf Tip: “Hand Span” Test to Attain Proper Distance From the Golf Ball

Golf Tip:  “Hand Span” Test to Attain Proper Distance From the Golf Ball

Have you ever wondered how far you should stand away from the golf ball before you hit your golf shot?

To find the correct distance from the ball, I like doing the “hand span” test.  Simply take your stance, make sure the sole of the club is sitting flush to the ground, with the toe and the heel of the golf club are level.  Make a slight “hand span” and place between the butt of the club and your body, where the pinky of your right hand is placed near the butt of the club and your thumb is near your body.  Your goal is to be a “hand span” away from the butt of the club after taking your address position.

This is a great, simple little measure to consistently get you to stand the proper distance from the ball, which in turn will promote better balance and weight shift throughout the swing.
