Do you know how far away to stand from the ball when you set up to hit a shot? Sue is here to give her recommendations

Welcome to a new instruction series from Dr. Sue Shapcott and Change Golf Instruction. This video is all about how far you should stand from the golf ball.

Although it seems fundamental, standing the correct distance from the ball is difficult. When we set up to the ball, our eyes do not give us the right perspective to determine if we are too close, or too far away from the ball. And if you are like most golfers, your set up – and distance from the ball – gradually changes over time. To check you are standing the correct distance from the ball it is worthwhile having a process.

In the video Sue gives you her recommendations.
