Identify your stance

Where you place your feet and how you align your stance is considered the foundation of a proper swing. The patented accudrive stripes are engineered to establish perfect foot alignment for every shot.

Choose the stance most closely associated with your personal style. There are generally two stances used by most tournament professionals: the “Leadbetter” stance or the “Hogan” stance. The stances differ in the position of the feet which, of course, affects the way the body moves through the swing.

Leadbetter stance

Leadbetter stance

The "Leadbetter" stance is based on the pivot motion of the body. Because the feet are turned out equally to the right and left at an angle of 27.5°, it encourages your right side to turn out of the way on the backswing while encouraging the proper rotation of your hips through impact on the left side*. This stance is used for both right- and left-handed golfers.

Hogan stance

Hogan stance

In the "Hogan" stance for right-handed golfers, the right foot is placed at a 90° angle to the line of flight and the left foot is turned out at a 22.5° angle. The stance acts as the perfect governor on the amount of hip turn the golfer can and should take on the backswing. On the downswing, the stance permits the golfer to go through the ball with the greatest physical power because the body will move in the direction of the position of the left foot†.

For left-handed golfers, the position is reversed: the left foot is at a 90° angle and right foot is turned out at a 22.5°.
