The fundamentals of a golf swing can often be overlooked as golfers go in search of a magical fix; the one movement that suddenly corrects all the long-standing problems so

about 3-4 inches of space between your heels and the wall. From this position, address your 6-iron. If you do it correctly, then you should be able to take your address position with your bottom just touching the wall.
