You might think the locker room is the only place
00:02
where you can use baby powder, but I've got
00:03
another great use for it to help you be
00:05
more consistent with your ball striking.
00:07
Go ahead and paint some footprints and
00:09
an alignment line in your stance
00:11
to help you create a consistent setup routine.
00:15
So, take your stance and for a mid iron,
00:17
I've got a seven iron here,
00:18
about shoulder width, and then paint some footprints
00:22
around your shoes, then draw a line from the ball
00:26
to your feet in a vertical manner to represent ball
00:28
position so you can get that correct every single time.
00:31
Take your stance the same way each swing
00:34
and pay attention to divot pattern on the way through,
00:36
it should be in front of the line.
00:41
Just don't forget to put the powder back
00:43
in the locker room when you're done.
