SEVE BALLESTEROS 1988
I begin by positioning the ball forward in my stance, which ensures I get the full value of the loft of the clubface essential to producing softly hit, soft-landing shots. I spread my feet just slightly apart at the heels, with about 60 percent of my weight on my left side to help promote the steep plane of swing also necessary for height. My feet are set a little open, both to limit the amount of body turn I make on the backswing and help me more easily clear my left side as I start down to the ball, which is vital to keeping the clubface open through impact.
