Golf Stance Width – How to find your shoulder width, and use it in your stance

Golf Stance Width

What can we do to determine the proper golf stance width for our swing? Most all golf instruction when talking about golf stance width, usually refers to “shoulder width” when making suggestions about how wide our stance should be. For example with a driver the instruction would say “a little wider than shoulder width.” Well, that is good , but just how do you know you are a little wider? In fact, do you even know for sure how wide your shoulders are? Do you have a way to know for sure that you are setting your stance to the proper width each time? Well, now you do!

After showing you how to measure for your shoulder width, I then make some recommendations for different golf stance widths. Please note these are GUIDELINES, and each of you should determine for your self which stance width is best for each of your clubs.
