Changing weight distribution in the golf swing for different shots is crucial to optimize your performance in each aspect of the game. Here's how you can adjust your weight distribution for chipping, pitching, irons, and the driver:
Set-Up: Start with most of your weight (around 70-80%) on your front foot (left foot for right-handed golfers). This promotes a downward strike and helps avoid thin shots.
Set-Up: Similar to chipping, have your weight on the front foot, but not as pronounced (around 60-70%).
Set-Up: Distribute your weight more evenly (around 50-50) between both feet. This allows you to hit the ball crisply with a slight descending blow.
Set-Up: Position the ball forward in your stance, and have around 55-60% of your weight on the back foot (right foot for right-handed golfers).
Remember, these guidelines provide a starting point, but every golfer's swing may vary. It's important to practice and find the balance that works best for you in each of these scenarios. Video analysis and lessons with a golf professional can help you fine-tune your weight distribution for different types of golf shots.
