How Far Apart Should Your Feet Be In Your Golf Stance?


Hello I’m Brian Fitzgerald The Golf Doctor. And today I thought I would continue along
my basics playlist and I would talk about how wide your feet should be in your setup. Stay tuned. [MUSIC] So how far apart should your feet be? There is a lot of conjecture. There is many
different opinions. Mine is not necessarily right. But it is my
method and it is the way I coach. So I like to do things quite simply and i
think the best place sorry the best position for your feet to be in in your stance is about
the same width as your shoulders. Now the reason I say that is I think that
shoulder width gives you the right amount of freedom to move your body when you swing
versus stability. If I get my stance really wide it’s very restrictive. I can’t really use my body and we do need
to use our body in the golf swing. So any stance that’s going to restrict your
body movement I don’t think is a good one. By the same token, if I put my feet together
I now have a lot more freedom to move my body but my balance isn’t quite as good. So I think the trade off between those two
is shoulder width. And if I am going to err I am going to tend
to err on the side of slightly narrower rather than slightly wider. Slightly wider definitely feels better. But
as I said before it does restrict your ability to turn. So by just having your feet at shoulder width
and shoulder width I believe is measured from the outsides of the feet. Not from the insides
of the feet. If you ,measure from the insides you get to
be a little bit too wide. So it really should be the outside. But with my feet in that position it gives
me the perfect opportunity to turn my body and put a good swing on it and remain stable. Thank you for letting me help you with your
