AbstractA golf stance and swing practice device in the form of three elongated flat strips of material such as metal or plastic hingedly and adjustably interconnected. The first strip is disposed generally with its longitudinal axis perpendicular, within a limited range of angles, to the longitudinal axis of the second and third strips. The third strip is mounted on the end of the first strip, and the first strip is mounted pivotably on the second strip at an adjustable distance from the third strip. The third strip provides an indexing arrangement for ball placement and direction of ball flight. The second strip has a scale for foot placement for appropriate stance and the first strip has a scale for providing reach for properly addressing the ball placed above the first strip at a predetermined distance thereof. The indexing arrangement for ball placement relative to the third strip consists of circles and lines disposed on the surface of the third strip. The third strip has a slot where attached on the end of the first strip such as to be longitudinally adjustable relative to the first strip. The first strip has a longitudinal slot where connected to the second strip for providing disposing the second strip at an appropriate distance from the third strip along the scale on the first strip. Angle markings are provided on the second strip where joined to the first strip and on the first strip where joined to the third strip for disposing the second and third strips at an angle relative to the first strip.
