Jack Nicklaus says once you have mastered the set up; grip, stance, posture, ball position, and alignment, you have mastered 80% of the game.

With that in mind, here at The Classic Swing Golf School and Fitting Center, zone one in our curriculum is designed to instill these fundamentals in every students game. Here in the photo, you see Ted Frick, Golf Machine Master Professional, working with one of our students, helping her to get her hands on the club properly.

Full shots comprise less than 45% of the scoring in golf for all levels of players. Yet whenever golfers gather, the full swing monopolizes the practice time, the effort, and the conversation. "The Swing," as it is called, suggesting there is only just one, can be made in a variety of angles, shapes, or sizes and still be effective. What we know for sure as teachers, is that your golf swing can be no better than your set up. These pre-swing fundamentals are static constants that we as players have complete control of, and our golf swing is a product of these 5 variables.

If you feel as though you are struggling in your game with one or more of these fundamentals, consult your local teaching professional or come see us at The Classic Swing!
