Good balance in the address position.

Although your spine is tilted away from the target at address, you should have your weight evenly balanced between your right and your left foot with your middle and long irons. Also, you should feel your weight evenly balanced between your heels and your toes, roughly on the balls of the feet. (For a more in-depth discussion/illustration of the setup, see Golf Setup Position: Step-by-step to a great golf stance.)
