Where Your Weight Needs To Be

From Jason Baile On February 02, 2023
The awareness of your center of mass and how you apply pressure into the ground is vital to setting up correctly for different shots. How you distribute your center of pressure/weight determines how your... body will move and how the club will be delivered through the golf ball.

You probably make slight setup adjustments already. For instance, the amount of weight you feel in your left foot vs. right foot is likely different if you're playing a half-wedge shot vs. a tee shot with your driver. But as Titleist staff members Jason Baile and Lance Gill discuss in this video, fine-tuning your sensitivity to your weight and pressure will give you a huge head start in swinging efficiently and executing shots the way you envision. Follow Jason's keys for ball position, spine axis tilt and distribution of weight in your feet for playing different shots. And give Lance's one-foot balancing drill a try to heighten your feel for pressure. This understanding will greatly improve your ability to use ground forces to your advantage.
