Golf Tip: How to Set Up a Hitting Station

August 14, 2012

Golf Hitting Stations

When you start to play golf, you want to start with the right fundamentals. Having the right golf stance and the right posture for golf are essential parts of hitting a great golf shot.

Once you know how to set up your golf shot – you want to practice. Practicing your golf swing and tee shot involves more than just going to the driving range and hitting golf balls. You want to set up a hitting station to practice correctly and make sure you know how to aim your shot every time.

In this golf tip, Minnesota PGA Professional Greg Schulze shows you how to set up a hitting station when you go to the range so you can learn to properly aim your shot and be as accurate as possible off the tee when you play golf.

What do you need to set up a hitting station? First start with four clubs. Place the first club lined up toward your target. Place your second club parallel to the first club – this is called the stance line. Stand behind the second line and place your third club perpendicular to the other clubs and between your feet. Place your golf ball at the top of that club and you’re ready to aim your shot. The clubs keep your feet and body in the correct alignment for your golf shot.
