THE GOLF BOKS 2.0 - SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
Get your Golf Boks 2.0 setup and ready to use in seconds. This video details our basic setup instructions and then shows some tips for setting it up in a variety of different ways depending on what you're looking to work on. Lots of ways to use the Boks to hold up alignment sticks and groove your swing.
224 PACK - SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
If you picked up one of our 224 Packs then watch this video to set it up into The Gauntlet. This setup is great for grooving an on plane takeaway and downswing. Practice with this and you'll quickly improve your swing plane which will lead to straighter and longer shots.
BOKS SETUP BASICS
Ball position is the starting point for a great setup in your golf swing. The graphics on The Golf Boks make it easy for you to have a consistent, repeatable ball position, and also adjust it to your personal preferences. We've highlighted one ball position on the Boks as a starting point or average that works for a lot of golfers. Look for "BALL POSITION" on the Boks and use the ball graphics to nail yours every time. Watch the video for more.
Stance width is the second starting point we focus on to create a repeatable golf swing. We've used golf ball graphics on the Boks to help you measure your stance width consistently. Stance width has a lot to do with personal preference, but in general shorter clubs have a narrower stance, and longer clubs have a wider stance. Use the Boks to setup consistently. You can even write on the Boks to highlight your stance width for each specific club in your bag.
Alignment equals how far left or right your body is lined up compared to your target. In general, the more right you aim, the easier it is to curve the ball right-to-left for a draw or hook. The more left you aim, the easier it is to curve the ball left-to-right for a fade or slice. We recommend lining your feet and body up straight at the target to start with and changing it if you want to see some different ball flight curvature.
BOKS SWING BASICS
Swing direction equals how far left or right your club moves compared to the target line from knee height to knee height. It matches the long edge of the Boks. In general, the more right your swing direction points the more likely you are to hit a draw, the more left your swing direction points the more likely you are to hit a fade (for right handed golfers). We recommend swinging parallel to where your feet are lined up, but some players prefer to have their stance open or closed to their swing direction.
Swing plane is the angle between the ground and the club's arc, it closely matches the foam noodles. You can adjust your "Swing Plane" by changing which hole you insert your alignment stick through. In general, your swing plane comes close to matching your shaft's lie angle at setup. The shorter the club, the steeper the swing plane, the longer the club, the flatter the swing plane. This can also change based on the height or body proportions of the player. Here's an idea of average lie angles for different clubs:
65° Steep wedge
60° Average wedge, Steep iron
55° Flat wedge, Average iron
50° Flat iron, Steep wood/driver
45° Flat long iron, Average wood/driver
40° Flat wood/driver
Low Point is where your clubhead is at the lowest point of its arc. It is measured in distance ahead or behind of the ball. In general, shorter clubs bottom out more ahead of the ball than longer clubs. When hitting irons or wedges off the ground we want the low point to be ahead of the ball. To maximize the efficiency of a driver off the tee we want the low point behind the ball.
COMMON DRILLS WITH THE GOLF BOKS
This is the other most common move of a beginner or average golfer. Imagine a line going up your shaft at setup, an inside takeaway is when your clubhead goes behind or underneath this line during the beginning of your swing. In general try to keep the clubhead working on top of or above that shaft plane during your takeaway, and closely match your shaft to it throughout your swing. The Golf Boks is perfect for helping you create a repeatable, on-plane takeaway with all of your clubs.
OVER THE TOP
This is one of the most common moves that a beginner or average golfer is trying to improve. If your downswing comes down steeper than, or over the top of your backswing, you are more likely to fade, slice, or pull the ball. This video shows you how to setup The Golf Boks to give you a visual of this move, and provide feedback to help you come down closer to your intended plane. We recommend either setting it up at the same "Swing Plane" of your shaft at address and starting off with pitch shots to get used to the feeling of a much shallower downswing. Exaggeration is a key to quicker improvement.
A new function of our Boks 2.0! Now you can put up two alignment sticks and clearly define a slot for your takeaway. If you know the lie angle of your club (can probably find it on your manufacturers website or with a quick Google search), setup one alignment stick a little flatter, and one alignment stick a little steeper than it in the "Swing Plane" holes of the Boks. Stand far enough ahead of the Boks so that you have to stretch back in your takeway to reach the alignment sticks, and move your club through the slot created by the two alignment sticks.
Do not hit balls if you may hit an uncovered alignment stick with your golf club mid swing. Always place a foam noodle over any alignment stick that may come close to a swing.
