Using what God gave you is the first key to building your stance
Building an effective stance, one that allows you to square the clubface at impact, is as simple as standing still.
Stand tall and let your arms hang to your side. I like to call this the anatomic state. This is how God designed you. Make a fist with your left hand and look down. You should see two or three knuckles. If your hand is on the club in that position, you have a better chance of squaring up the clubface more often.
