Beginner golfers often struggle with their swing because of information overload. There are thousands of golf books, golf lessons and golf videos available that can confuse the beginner golfer. Beginner golfers should take learning the game of golf one step at a time and really start and focus on the basics of the swing. Once they have that down, they should transition to other elements of the game.

In that spirit, here are some full proof golf lessons that are relevant for all golfers, but especially for beginner golfers.

Ball Position Golf Lessons

It is critical that your golf ball is positioned correctly before you even take your golf swing. Otherwise, you can encounter a range of errant shots with no idea what is causing them. So, to hit solid golf shots every time, here are some PGA proven golf lessons for your ball position in relation to your golf stance.

1. The ball should be in the center of your stance for shorter irons including 8, 9 irons and wedges
2. The ball should be about an inch forward from center for mid irons including 5, 6, and 7 irons
3. The ball should be about two inches forward from center for fairway clubs including 3 and 5 woods and hybrid clubs
4. The ball should be about three inches forward from center for your driver and aligned with the heel of your forward foot.

Full Swing Golf Lessons


Throughout your golf swing, your body should be synchronized. This starts with the backswing. So, in your backswing, rotate the club, arms and body back together as you shift your weight to the inside of your back leg. Your wrists should naturally hinge as they approach your waist. At the top of the backswing, ensure your leading arm is straight, most of your body weight is on the inside of your back leg and that your back knee is flexed. Your shoulders should rotate up to 90 degrees at the top of your backswing while your hips rotate from 30 to 45 degrees.


Shift your weight toward your forward leg to initiate the downswing. This weight shift leads your hips, arms and shoulders to follow and unwind to the impact position. At impact, your head remains behind the ball. Continue turning your body after impact so that your arms and club extend toward the target after impact and finish relaxed with your belt buckle facing your target.
