For your body to move as freely as possible, you have to start in balance. Your weight should be in the squarely in the middles of your feet - you don't want to feel like you're out on your toes, stuck back on your heels, or favoring to the left or right. To get in the correct, balanced position, try this three-step routine: (1) Push your hips back, (2) angle your spine toward the ball and (3) flex your knees slightly. Steps 1 and 2 set good posture, while step 3 helps stability. Also, make sure your right side is slightly lower than your left. When you're looking down at the ball, you can ensure it's in the right place by having it in line with the left side of your face (for a middle iron). When you look at the clubface, it should be facing your target.
