Golf Tip – Posture

October 26, 2015 Posted by Matt

Good posture is important.  If you have poor posture at setup, you are stacking the deck against yourself for hitting good golf shots.  Stand up straight with your feet about shoulder width apart.  Bend over about 30 degrees from your hips (not your waist).  Keep you back straight and your neck and head in a line from your spine.  Make a slight knee flex, so you get the feeling of being in an athletic position.  You should feel like a baseball infielder at the ready.  Your weight should be balanced on the ball of your feet, and your arms should hang down from your shoulders.  You are now in perfect posture.  Use a picture of a touring professional at setup, and then look at yourself in a full-length mirror to see how you compare.
