Here's a simple golf instruction tip from European Tour professional Steve Webster to help you get your golf swing on a much better plane. And it involves just sticking a golf ball under your right heel. 

Steve says: "Here's a small tip if you're struggling when the club goes around you and inside the line on the backswing...

"Practice with a golf ball under your right heel as this stops the hips turning too much and keeps the club on a much better plane and works the club more up plus your weight stays more on the balls of your feet so the arms work underneath your shoulders better.

"It also keeps the arms working underneath the shoulders better too. Give it a go and let us know how you get on."


Interesting exercise. My friend and friend from best homework help started playing golf and we were given such advice: Concentrate on the putting. On most golf courses, you can use the training green for free, and they will not exhaust you like ball hits on the training field. Approximately half your punches will be pattens, so learning them brings great dividends; professionals say for a reason: "Drive - to impress the audience, and money is earned by the pattens." Is this a good advice?
