In this section, Shawn Clemens makes an introduction and talks about feeling the correct distance between you and the golf ball. The important thing to remember when judging the correct distance between you and the golf ball is not to take it in relation to you hitting the golf ball. Practice swinging freely and determine where the club bounces a bit onto the ground and adjust you distance from there while making sure that the ball is on the way of your free wing.

In this section, Shawn Clemens will teach you how to correctly judge the distance between you and the golf ball. If you feel like you are extending your arms to reach the golf ball then you are positioned too from it and if you feel that you have to move your arms closer into the body to hit the ball then you are positioned too near to the ball. By practicing on swinging freely and adjusting your position from there while making sure that the ball is on the way of your free swing you will be able to hit the ball solid on impact. On addressing the ball, it is also important that you look at the ball and onto the target and get the feel of the distance of the ball.
